Trying to consolidate my sanding tools/supplies in one place and get rid of some of the dust when sanding. The table hooks up to my dust collector and does a good job with lowering the dust during sanding. The solid wood and casing are beech/beech ply. Baltic Birch Ply used for the drawers. Wipe on poly used for the finish. The sanding surface is a peg board cut to match the opening, it is a snug fit but can be removed to access below. This was built with a lot of R&D (ripoff and duplicate) from various other projects on the internet. Considering adding removable side panels to further improve the dust collection. Another benefit here is there never seems to be enough flat surfaces in the shop when you are working on a project or the tools are laid down where you want to be working. This provides some additional storage surface when working on a project and not using it for sanding.

Very good idea. What is on top?

Standard peg board. I place a perforated non-slip pad over the top when sanding. The air draw into the table remains good.
