This took me forever.
Chipping away at it 30 min here and there after work or after the kids were in bed. This weekend I finally got a couple of hours and went crazy.
I have been looking to make a sanding table to help control dust in the garage. Since the spring I have looked at a lot of plans and ready-built models online, but it just seemed easier(?stupider) to make it myself to the dimensions I wanted so that I can stand at the workbench, saw or portable table and not get a sore back.
Jim B made ‘Dusty’ and got me going with his great design and some tips in his blog: http://lumberjocks.com/jbertelson/blog/11569
A trip to the lumberyard’s off cut section found MDF, pegboard, hardboard and some thin ply all very cheap. The MDF was $.50; the black hardboard set the tone for colors.
The P51 was added just for fun to keep up with Dusty’s style….and I had a decal kicking around.
Sorry it is not fine woodworking but it was fun, eventually
