In the latter stages of building our new electric brewery, and I’m starting to think/rethink sizes for work tables and shelves. Not talking about the actual brew table- that’s already set. More about the surfaces for work and storage. Initially I was planning on a 24” deep table working surface and 12” deep shelves, but now wondering whether a 30” deep table and 14” or 15” deep shelves would have any advantages. Anyone with experience with this who could offer insights or regrets?

Thanks, kal! I am quite familiar with these links - believe me. Your step-by-step was my bible as I started on this journey.
Great! The table links are actually new as of the last week or two ... I've been re-organizing things.
Glad to hear that the 24" deep table has been a success. I assume then that 12" shelves are sufficient?
I've been ok with them, though it would really depend on what you want to store on them. I'd make a list / organize and see how much room you need.
Also, I notice that you have opted for non-solid surfaces for your shelves. Was this intentional?
Not really. Or should I say, I didn't need or want solid ones as all of the small things I wanted on the other tiny shelves down lower to make them easily accessible. There are lots of small bits and pieces and some tools, and I wanted them to each have their "spot" so that they were always in the same location.
