I just finished a shop storage project I’ve been thinking about tackling for a while. It’s based on an article that I found in a 1964 Popular Science magazine about the New York World’s Fair: http://books.google.com/books?id=3iUDAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA120&dq=shop+world%27s+fair&hl=en&ei=xm9ITruAB8yisQLlwYCSCA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=5&sqi=2&ved=0CEsQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=shop%20world%27s%20fair&f=false. Popular Science built a couple of model shops for the exhibit. I actually attended the Fair with my parents. I really liked their idea for a set of corner cabinets and a revolving tool turret. It holds two drills, a sander, a router, and a jig saw. Below the shelves is a circular saw holder that slides forward on a track. As it turned out, this project was perfect for a corner of my shop. It was fairly simple to build from 3/4” plywood and is very functional. Using otherwise wasted space, I’m now able to readily find tools that I tend to use the most.
