« Part 3: accessory mount Part 4 of table and miter saw table series Part 5: sunday's ventures »

all roughed in and messy, but coming together. I have a 6” main feed into a 6×6x6 wye that will spit off to downdraft table and then a 6×5x4 (5” goes to bottom of saw, 4” will be reduced to 3” for overhead dust collection on saw). spent 3 hours drilling holes for downdraft, still have to do baffling.

Wow, That’s a lot of holes to drill!

I see you decided to go with the drawers. You gonna put a door in front of them? Other wise, they’ll probably get a lot of sawdust in them.

i foolishly used my incra 12” rule on one side and then the other side, other every 1” with a 3/8” brad point drill bit. As you can see by the hole pattern, I was off 1/2” :) tis what I get for using brain power at 1:30 am
