My attempt at organization.
The ones on the outside are on hangers made from snowmobile Hyfax (slide rail plastic slides).

I have steel slatwall on two sides of my shop behind the machines so I make my own tool racks out of 20 ga sheet metal that fits into the slots. Bend 'em up and spot weld 'em on.

A circle template made of plywood makes it easy to plasma cut holes in sheet metal for the R8 stuff.

I don't have a lot of room. Quick change tool holders on white shelf above back shield. Chucks, keys, allen wrenches, far right corner. Taps, center drills, special bits and metrology in small cabinet below lathe.

I use al extrusion. Tried both sheetmetal (.090 aluminum) and nylon slats. Honestly they both work equally well. Nice thing is you can use multiple surfaces of the extrusions. Very easy to reconfigure. I was somewhat concerned about cantilevering etc but its solid as a rock.

I see all of the different designs here and thoroughly understand "limited space" with my working machine shop in half a 2-car garage, but I warn people to never store ANYTHING above your lathe. To the side, the back, underneath, whatever. But, definitely not above the spindle/chuck or anywhere that something could possibly fall into spinning parts. It's tempting, empty space and convenient, I get it.

Safety First! Check my Signature. :think1:

I had nice white pegboard behind my lathe. Had all the tools on it, nice and neat. Looked great. Then I used the lathe for a bit. If oil was red it would have looked like a crime scene.
