Today I drilled and installed the top of my downdraft/outfeed table. It’s the top from a “ready to assemble” computer desk/conference table. I wound up with a 39×12 grid of holes. If you do the math, that’s 468 holes to drill and countersink. It took an hour and a half and 4 worn-down old cordless batteries to do it. You can see the 6” long-radius elbow where it’s plumbed into my dust collection system on the left. The top sticks out more on the far side so an 8’ piece can clear the saw blade and still have the balance point on the table so it won’t tip.
