I have been trying to keep the shop and attached house cleaner. With an overhead forced air furnace the more dust I can catch the less dusting Jamie gets to do and makes breathing better also. Built with construction grade lumber and some plywood from other projects. Stained with golden oak and poly finish so it is easy to keep looking good. Is kind of rustic looking but is easy to make changes to if the need arises.
Started out as a benchtop downdraft unit. Bought the inserts and built the box around them. Really pleased with the way the dust is handled. Very little if any airborne dust while sanding now. (As long as I remember to turn on the dust collector)
Then I decided that it should sit on it’s own roller cabinet with storage for sanders and sandpaper etc.
That worked for awhile but as most know any semi horizontal area is soon going to be used to set things on so added a hinged top with a nice work surface on top. Also it is the same height as the table saw, miter saw and planer so it works as a portable out feed table as well.
As always thanks for looking and comments are all welcomed.
