This is a down draft table that I built to help control the dust in my shop. Bottom and sides are made from 3/4” baltic birch plywood, rabbeted sides and on the bottom (over sized for clamping), and held together with screws. The top is 3/4” MDF with 1” holes and rabbeted 1/4” to sit down in the opening. The inside slopes are scrap plywood set at an angle to help increase the “down draft”. Overall dimensions are 32” x 16 3/4” x 6 3/4”.
I am not sure if this is the best design, just something I thought would work. It does a pretty good job, although I am open to suggestions. Let me know if you have a better design or ideas for the hole placement and angle of the inside of the box (the top can be replaced and the inside plywood can be moved around or done over). Thanks for looking.
