In part 1 and part 2, I completed frame, saw platform, and drawer. In this final article and video (of three part series), I created the dust shroud. The amount of dust that this contains is incredible! Before, after about 10 cuts, I would be covered in dust. Now I can basically cut until my heart’s content and still be able to breathe.
There is a hardwood track so you can slide the Plexiglas out to do miter and bevel cuts or remove it completely for easy cleaning. I really dreaded cutting the Plexiglas but after figuring out I could cut it on the bandsaw and using my table saw’s 50T blade, it was easier to cut than plywood (don’t forget those safety glasses, small chips flown EVERYWHERE).
If you have made it this far, thanks for reading all three parts!
