Just another sanding box/table, based on the excelent project posted by LDL http://lumberjocks.com/ldl at

http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68976

My version is in poor MDF, bottom in plywood and doesn’t have screws or nails. Miters and bottom are simply glued (not the top, to make it easy to clean if necessary)
Works great and it’s very useful for me. Thanks LDL !!!!

I hope it motivates others to build (and add to…) it too.

Some more pictures of my version can be seen at

Have Fun!

Nice job. A tool like this is a very important part of a shop that gets overlooked.

Thanks for the reference.

You did a good job on this. I’m glad I you could use this project. It is a handy thing to have for small sanding jobs.

I have been setting up a box fan to my right and open garage doors to my left for “dust collection”. Not the best in my unheated shop in freezing 40 degree winter…

I built one of these years ago, but I did not slope the inside like you did, I like that.
great job

Dado Sutter I see you are resting the piece on stand-offs.

If you rest it directly on the table, does the suction hold it still, and does it also increase the ‘suck’ on the uncovered holes?

Just curious!

Thank you all for welcoming my first posted project and for making it to the Daily Top 3! This community rocksssssss :)
All credits must go to LDL http://lumberjocks.com/ldl
Lew and Smitty, the size is fine and the slopes help to keep the suction more uniform.
Don, the box bottom is actually flat and covered. The suction is restricted to the top surface. When sanding smaller pieces we can simply lay a piece of paper over some uncovered holes, to concentrate the suction on a smaller area.
Works great and it’s fun to build.
Thank you again for the welcome.
Cheers
Dado
