Very nice build with lots of storage space. Roughly, how long did it take you to complete the project?

It probably isn't.

It's about flow versus velocity. Smaller hoses move less air at higher speed. Larger hoses move more air but at lower speed.

The optimum size for the KAPEX is 36mm. Optimum length between the KAPEX and MIDI seems to be about 1.5-1.8M.

Great looking stand.  I really like your solution for building in adjustability to the legs for the extra board support.

Nice job!  Is the high back for cosmetics or do you store items on the backside?

Mainly because I liked the looks of Peter Parfitt's from the New Brit workshop.   An added benefit was keeping the small amount of dust that is not collected from going behind the saw.

@Stanleywc 
I like the design with the CT behind a door to cut down on sound and the plastic tub right below for the scraps.  You did a nice job and thanks for sharing!  A lot of good ideas to copy.

That's a pain I bought a 7m 50mm hose and a few fittings cost a fortune  [mad]
I have cut it to 1500mm though
What is the best use of the 50mm hose
I was going to use some for my router table

A 50mm hose will give you better extraction than a 27mm one, the reasoning is simple:
bigger hose = less resistance = lower absolute pressure at nozzle = higher airflow where you need it
