This project was a very welcome addition to my wood shop. The top is just a sheet of 1/4” pegboard that lays down into the recessed top.

The 2nd photo shows a major Oooops! Sure am glad I missed those screws with my new circular saw!! :(

Your not supposed to show the “oops” photos. Nice home made build. Downdraft tables are a must….........

Thanks Mike. Now the really fun part will be when I go to build the triangular shaped drawers. :)

Looks good, I will offer some advice. I made a similar table some time ago using pegboard as well for the top, even though a lot of the dust gets sucked down some does not. I drilled a few larger holes not too big I believe about 5/8” , and it grabs more of the dust. Not too many holes just a couple of rows, and the holes spaced a few inces apart. What oops? I don’t see anything, that was part of the design.

Thanks Martin. I will certainly give your tip a try.

My sanding station literally sits about 8 feet down the river from my Oneida dust collector, so it does a pretty nice job. But I’m always looking to better things. I also have my 6” orbital sander connected to the dust collection system as well. That does a pretty nice job too, but needs improvement.

Thanks again, Dale.

Great job. One of these has been on my shop 2 do list for a while now. I was going to make a unit that sat on top of my assembly table. I like your design and will now probably make a stand alone down draft table with a top I can throw on there for assembly. Thanks for sharing!
