I made the compressor loft, although I attached it at a lower height in a corner. I also added a lip to the front of the top shelf just in case the compressor tended to "walk" itself off when running due to the vibration. Works great for me and I no longer need to shift the compressor out of the way during garage re-orgs or cleaning. One caution for others... check the corner you intend to place the loft to see if it is square before you cut the shelf pieces. I neglected to do that and my corner was not square resulting in gaps (I/2" + at shelf ends) between the wall and the shelf tops from the outside points to the corner... small air compressor hose fittings, pencils, dust, debris, etc will find those gaps if not filled/caulked. Not a big deal, but can be dealt with if known in advance with a greater than 90 degree cut on the shelf tops.

I have been successful using wheel carriages from under old office chairs to adapt my tools to and have overcome the "small" shop situation and made my tools mobile, as well. The female conncecting piece on the chair is just the right ID for using rigid electical conduit to extend to desired height. Got pix if you want to see them.

Used the air compressor idea for a few years. Great for getting up and out of the way. Only caveat is you have to climb a ladder in order to adjust your pressure settings, which can be a pain. Otherwise worked well.
