I needed to frame in that open area between the fence rails, and also wanted a downdraft type of sanding area so i took from some ideas i seen on the internet, Its not big measuring in at 27inchs by 16 and a half inchs but i dont normally built anything really big so i think this will work out good for me, and being in a two car garage anything helps with the dust controll, thanks for looking guys

Great idea. Did you put baffles in the box?

When the car is parked outside it looks so clean,

park it in the garage and the next morning it is

full of wood dust.

I made a similar unit and enlarged the holes slightly. Then I put one of those sanding / routing mats over the top of it to cushion the piece being sanded and it also helps to keep it in place and also allows the sanding dust to get sucked thru it : )
Nice project !

yea ive kicked the idea around for a while, tried it out tonight for the first time, did ok not all the way happy with it, apparently i didnt have the internal peices/baffles fastened appropriatly and they moved while hanging it, glued up that way, id say honestly it took away about half its effectiveness, brightside though …. when the hard board is due to be replaced ill fix the problem. untill then its still alot better while sanding than previously and i did notice a big difference, thanks everyone for the suuport
