I have been away from woodworking for six months, but doing everything I can to bone up on tips and tricks of the trade to improve my overall woodworking expereince. I have seen a few downdraft sanding table projects on here and I thought it was a very clever idea. I liked it so much that I made my own take on it. It’s made with pegboard, 3/4” pine, and 1/4” ply. The nozzle is not cut to size just yet. The pegboard is held in place with suction and with dowels. It was not built with beauty in mind, but I used butt joints that are both glued and screwed. The tapered ply parts you see will be sealed with some sort of tape to seal up the crevasses. Hopefully this will reduce the amount of dust in the air and on my garage floor.
This website has been great! I have many more project ideas from folks that have posted on here and that includes many ways to make woodworking easier.
-- I make sawdust. I think thats a fair assessment of my finished products!
