This is my version of a Louisiana downdraft table.
I wanted something adjustable instead of just having a horizontal top. The stand is part of a welding table that I converted and added a pivot rod and a 6” hand wheel to lock it in place.
The Rockler gizmo clamps and track help secure pieces from moving. I have five sets of these to use in different configurations.
my central dust collection hooks up to it

That’s one heavy duty dust collection table. must pull the chips in with the large holes in the top.

I don’t get any chips in the sanding room but it sure takes care of a lot of dust. i also have 3 squirrel cage fans with filters in there that clean the air…but I still use my darth vader dust helmet

I checked out the dust helmet but for my current financial situation and I wouldn’t be using it regularly I’m going to wait awhile, but your table thickness has triggered a few thoughts . :<)

This downdraft table is a nice piece of work and very practical and well thought out. It will prove to be a nice addition to your shop.
