The cabinets were made with factory seconds birch plywood and poplar face frames. I don’t normally like painting wood but with the defects in the outer ply and these being strictly for shop storage I thought they would look better painted. The mobile dust collector is a step up from my shop vac and with a small shop this works very well. I made the cart out of scrap birch plywood and electrical conduit as diagonal braces. Nothing as spectacular as some of the other projects on our forum. These two projects are the begining of my new wood shop in our garage. I will post some pictures later of my fishing rod wrapper tables that I made this summer to support my other addiction.

The dust collector from Rockler was $199.00, the hose extends from 3’ to 21’ it was around $40.00 and the 5micron bag was about $30.00. It has 650 cfm and is very quiet and does a great job with my Uni-saw. The stand cost $13.00 for conduit, “T” nuts and 1/4 20 bolts.

Nice! I’d love to see more pictures of the mobile DC set up you have there. I’ve been contemplating buying one of those for a while.

Nice looking cabinets. Being mobile helps, especially in small spaces.
