In an effort to help control sanding dust in my shop, I decided to build a dedicated sanding table.
This one has an additional benefit of being an air filtration system, with an old
furnace filter I salvaged installed inside. You can leave it on while working elsewhere
in the shop, and it will filter the air for you… (I haven’t finished the wiring for it yet…hopefully this weekend)
It was built using ShopNotes issue No.24, and will use 3 standard 16”X20” furnace filters,
that are replaceable. There will be two filters on top, and one below the blower.
I enlarged the holes in the quarter inch pegboard for the top to 3/8”,
for more suction capability through the top.
Looking forward to firing it up…
Update: I finished the wiring by adding a switched outlet to the side, and added a 50’ extension for powering the unit. (This hangs off the back) I can plug it in anywhere in the shop just once, and power other tools from the outlet. The switch also allows me to run the fan whenever I want dust collection.
