Took some left over Accuride bottom mount slides , added a plywood “drawer” . Makes it easy to use my compressor. I did not see anything like this on Lumber jocks. So , I thought it might give you some ideas.

I made one several years ago. When the compressor comes on, the vibration opens the drawer! :-(

Great idea and handy too!
Getting ready to add a new shop since I’ve moved so this is a great idea to add to my to do list.

MT-stringer Nice setup!
May add my Dewalt contrators saw to the left end as I had before, that lets the saw fence be used as a stop for the miter saw when needed.
I wish Lowes still sold those $21 vacs they were really nice tools and worked great with my home made cyclone. The $21 ones from Home Depot are ok but use a smaller hose and are weaker.

This whole storage unit is a wonderful organizer for your shop and the pullout shelf for the air compressor is a great space saver and is quite convenient.
