Bob, this is looking pretty good. The bench will add a lot of storage to your shop. And the pegboard addition is a nice idea as well. I am sure you have enough tools to fill them up.
sIKE and I both added our versions of this to our shops. The bench is a lot of work but is well worth the effort.

That is similar to what I am looking to do but I am going to reverse the miter saw and radial arm saw. Why didn’t you lower the miter saw to the height of the table? I’m wondering for my own use.
This should add lots of space for tools. it’s a nice clean look, great job.
