This is a project I have been wanted to do for a while but since I got a smaller hose that attaches to my ROS I kinda put it on the back burner. I decided to go ahead and do it. I used pine and some pegboard. I also used some thin paneling for the inside tapered bottoms. I tapered it all to the side hoping it will all go to the suction hole in side. Initially I plan to use it with my shop vac. I haven’t used it yet but it sucked pretty good just throwing some dust up on it.

Very cool idea, I might need to make a bigger one though for some of the larger projects!

great job. I just picked up some peg board to do the same thing. Great timing. What size did you make it? Would also like to hear how it works after you have had a chance to put it to the test.

It is 16”x24”x4”. Hope this helps.

I have the rest of the pegboard which is 32×24 and have plans for a bigger one if this turns out to werk well. I may make it to fit my DC and use a 4”port. I would have to make it 6” high to accommodate the 4” port.

You can block off some of the holes with blocks of MDF to increase suction.

Thanks guys for the comments. Hope it werk good for those that build one. I’m not into projects right now that require this box but in the near future I have something in mind that I could use it on. I built it mainly for use with my belt sander as I have no DC port on it. It is an old craftsman 3x?. I use a small dust hose on my ROS which werks very well.
