This is a downdraft table idea I got from fellow Lumberjock Greg the Whodat. I too have dust problems when making my “art” boxes. I used a 2ft x4ft piece of 3/4” plywood then framed it with 1×4 yellow pine. I cut the hole out to accomidate the rockler downdraft inserts. I then cut 2” pieces and created a frame for the inserts to set on. I then attached a big gulp dust collector to the frame. I bulit the legs and braces from 1×4 yellow pine and some older heartwood pine flooring I savalge from my friend’s parents barn. I plan on adding the rockler t-track in smaller pieces, 6 1/2 ”, around the inserts. I am going to use the left side for flat sanding.
The angle for the legs is 12 degrees which gives it a nice slope. The back legs are 36” tall.
