Finally got around to post this. Once I got my temporary saw horse workbench up and running spending some time building some needed jigs and shop projects.

here’s a dust deputy cart based on the Woodsmith plans available online. Overall it was fairly easy, though cutting circles with a jig saw was an exercise in frustration. It’s all made from birch plywood

Overall turned out well, did 2 coats of spray on lacquer. I definitely recommend it to anyone who’s picked up a dust deputy as having to lug around the cyclone with bucket whenever you move your vacuum gets old really fast. The casters that they include with the product itself are woefully inadequate. If I had to do it again I would have just bought the barebones Dusty Deputy and put the rest together myself rather than buying the package.

next up is a moxon vise.

That looks nice. There for a minute, I thought you had incorporated a pair of drink holders. :-)

thanks for the comments!

I think it probably took 3-4 hours total build…hard to say when I was working on it 30-40 mins a night once the baby was asleep :) I believe it all took 3 pieces of 2’x4’ plywood.

I never though of those 2 cutouts as beer holders…but come to think of it, 2 cans or bottles should fit nicely!

Nice; I’ve definitely got to make one of these also. What issue of Woodsmith were the plans in? No. 203? Thanks for posting.
