Mine, because of space constraints, is against the wall (I have a single garage) and although I had thought that there was some convenience in having tools against the wall and in cabinets when I built the whole shebang, I have since wished I’d had enough space for a freestanding bench.  I have managed to fit everything more or less along the entire wall and along one side so mine is more L-shaped to accommodate a table saw which is on wheels so it can be stowed away.  I am now much more inclined to go the minimalist workshop route, and when I move, I shall.
