I have my cabinet saw set up roughly in the middle of the shop with router table extension on the right and a dc pipe coming down from the ceiling. I thought I should have access on all four sides. Last week I saw a shop with the ts against the wall. His doc came up from the floor along the wall. He said it never gave him a concern and didn’t know there was another way. So now I’m advising a good friend who is building a from the ground up stand alone shop. All New stationary tools etc. I’m curious, what are the many configurations and what are the benefits of each? Picture would be appreciated.

I only need access to the front of the TS. Initially I thought I would need access to three sides of the saw, but having tools on either side and lumber storage under the outfeed table hasn’t hindered me any.

As far as the DC, sure along the wall would work if the saw is near a wall. Otherwise the piping usually will run up to the ceiling.
