I needed a multi-port manifold. I thought about just using PVC wyes but would still need to make the dust gates. It works really well and is very convenient. If I were to do it again, I would have made the bottom the same size as the top and add another port to make it a 4-port manifold. I didn’t really need the 4th port but it would be nice to have a spare.
I used all scrap wood. I “painted” the particle board with Durham’s Rock Hard Water Putty to give it a nice texture. Then painted it with Forest Green spray paint for wood. I think it came out pretty cool.
Durham’s is a great product. It’s available at HD and Lowes, it’s inexpensive and extremely versatile. You can even add small amounts of paint to better match the wood you are working with.
That’s my product pitch. :)
