I do a lot of sanding, my orbital sander came with a dust bag, but it doesn’t collect that much dust. So I made this Downdraft/sanding table for my orbital, and mouse sander. It’s made out of 3/4’’ and 1/2 plywood, and I used pegboard for the top. It’s really just a box, with a pegboard top. I also put a baffle inside, the baffle helps the air flow of the table. I also drilled a hole, for my shop vac hose to connect. The dimensions for the box are 14’’ long, by 13 3/4’’ wide. This provides plenty of support for your work piece that your sanding. I used 1 1/2’’ wood screws, to hold everything together. But for the baffle, I used glue, and brad nails. I the baffle was really hard getting it in the box, it took awhile, but I finally got it to fit. It’s a really easy project to make, that will get a lot of use in the shop.
