Thanks for all the tips. I’m used to switching sides on my miter saw for the finished cut – I’m crammed in this corner as is, and I’ve only got about 4 ft on the left right now. My preference is to have the finished piece on the left because I’m working the saw with my right hand, but there’s no laser on it and really either is fine with me.

Yes, dust collection is becoming a concern of mine, both for health and mess. In my drawing I have my shop vac and small 5gal cyclone bucket on the concrete pad just behind the table saw. I intend to make some rigid piping that goes along the wall in a u-shape over to the chop saw with one more port right in the back in the middle for misc hand tools on the assembly / outfeed table, of course with some connections for the table saw right there too. Mulling over where I could put a floor sweep too…
