I have been working at arranging my storage in the shop so that the items that belong with a particular power tool are where that tool resides. My latest adventure is my sliding router table. here are some pictures ,they are self explanatory.

Very nice Herb. You certainly seem to have squeezed the maximum amount of storage from the available space. That's an interesting manifold for the DC - kind of central to the shop?
I call it a tree. I made a hollow 8X8 column and put ports out the sides and a 6"round directly into the top.

The story behind the "Burns"is: I made the drawer units, had them all glued together and slid them in place. Then when I went to make the face frame, ....OOPS I had made them with square ends on the front, and the front legs slope back., so the face frame slopes back and my cabinet boxes don't slope back. HMMMMM we have a problem here.
That is when I took them to the TS and cut the slope on the end and you know how unweildy a box is tocut 3 sides on an angle on the table saw.
It smoked it a little, should have use more bacon grease on the saw blade, but didn't want to let go with one hand while I was cutting. It covers anyway and doesn't show.

Great idea Herb and well executed. My drill bits are not near my drill press and my router bits are just bunched together, in their original containers or envelopes, underneath my router table. Every time I need a bit it takes me time to find it. I think I now see a way to solve my problem. You've inspired me.

I had the same problem with my table saw blades. I only have 5 blades but I kept them in their original packaging underneath my contractor saw in the mobile base. The blade wrenches were kept attached to the side of the saw with the factory supplied wing nut. Too much fumbling around so about 2 months ago I made box to keep them in. Much faster and easier to change blades now.

@harrysin Yup yours is the same only branded differently. Also yours is the reason I bought mine. I did up grade with a Rockler Lift that I bought from @DesertRatTom . My bottom shelf was a catch all too.
@DaninVan to answer your question the fittings for the 6" PVC run anywhere from $25.00-$45.00 for the Wyes.then the reducers 6"-4"are $6.00-$12.00 es. too. The whole thing is made from left over Laminate Flooring and scrap wood.
