Need ideas for a 8ft x 10ft workshop

So I'm turning one of my garage bays into a workshop.  I'm able to fit 8' x 10' with a 9' 6" ceiling no problem.  I need some ideas on counter surfaces and cabinets.  I'd need some storage, an area for a desktop and 4-6 amps, 2 dacs, and a preamp.  Lastly an area to work on projects.

Is there an online layout tool that doesn't have a huge learning curve or anyone on here that can do a layout?  I'd gladly throw a few bucks their way for some time.

I used graph paper and made scale cut outs of the tools and cabinets to see how they would fit. I'm not sure what you mean by wanting ideas for cabinets so you might need to give more information like what kind of work you're going to do in the shop and what you need to store, etc. Upper cabinets for my shop were from a kitchen I helped remodel and then we built the base cabinets.

I thought about doing that as well.  Mostly just assembling amps and such so soldering, drilling.  No wood working or welding.  I might add a 3D printer.

I saw some unfinished base cabinets at the homedepot.  I might go that route if I can't find anything local or on craigslist.
