EEngineer, you are absolutely right. It’s 101.02142, apparently from 1938? I had no idea it was that old. Thanks for sharing with me. I wasn’t able to find the manual there, but they do have Craftsman power tool magazines from that time period. Seeing everything that was available back then is pretty cool. I really like some of the storage ideas in the last link you provided. I’m going to incorporate them in my design. Thanks for the tips!

Sawkerf, I had originally thought about making a cabinet that extends to the ends of my fence rails, but I’ve realized I would probably benefit from making it similar to the size of your cabinet (or the one EEngineer linked to in his post). I can always add on to it later, once I’m ready to put a router on there. I like that your dust collection design allows for more storage beneath. That’s much better than a couple cabinets I’ve seen that devote all the space beneath the saw for dust collection.

Details are coming together in my mind. It’s time to put them on paper.
