Great storage ideas on this video. This guy takes a trip over to another garage, the guy used to be a tool and die maker.

Some great ideas. I want the vac... nice.. remote control....
I have a remote, but its one of those Christmas time remotes... Wish I could mount it on an elbow like that.
really some neat ideas.. long... so you probably want to watch it at 1.5 to 1.75

There are some good ideas in there.

A friend gave me the central vac out of his house and it’s been waiting. I recently mounted it, connected a cyclone separator, and ran a hard tube to my machining section, where I mounted it to the side of a :

You can just see it tucked in behind the mill:

I have a 20’ flex tube that will reach all the machines and can stay plugged in.
I need to add a gate valve so I can put another outlet or two in the other shop section.

Oh and for storage, I recently got a flat cabinet from Dave @mmcmdl and it fit perfectly under one of my benches (it sits on the side rails and I added front and rear steel-angle cross bars):
