Ok all need some help and fast! I got a new house...score 1.
This place has a bonus room 22x8 score 2. I need a good plan setup for my new shop. Should the table tops be standing height or sitting height for cabbing. What about trim saw height?  All suggestions appreciated!

i would make them standing height at 4 foot for a cabbing area.
Its easy enough to get a stool nowdays tall enough to be comfortable at a standing table/bench.

Now i am unsure about a smithing area for metals if you do that. i have to make all my jewery on a wash machine because i dont have space to have a smithing area. so standing room only.

I agree with standing if your back is up to it.  Eight feet will get pretty narrow when you put equipment against both sides.  A chair could be a major impediment whereas a stool can take much less space.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

I sit while at my jewelry bench and at my cabbing machine. I stand at my polishing wheel and my trim saw. A mix up to help exercise my sitting and standing muscles, bones and such.

For me and my bad block, I sit while cabbing and doing most jewelry work. I stand for the trim saw and soldering. I put my workbenches at kitchen cabinet height which works pretty well while standing, and I adjust my chair height for sitting at the same counter. When and if I redo my shop I will probably raise the height of cabinets for the trim saw and soldering.  hide

Just my $0.002 worth this AM.

I like standing height with a tall stool that has a back rest. It gives me the flexibility to switch between sitting and standing.
