I am very happy with the way this one turned out.
Almost 98% of chips/dust go into the drawer.
Its also very compact. The plywood card not counting the in out tables or hoses is 26”x26”.
The only thing I had to do was raise the planer on a couple of 2×6’s so that the dust deputy had enough room to breath. My first attempt caused a kind of backlog of air and the dust/chips would start to back up.
I built the cart about 6 months ago and only recently got the new planer. If I built the cart again I would increase the height to fit dust deputy and perhaps a larger drawer so I would have to empty it less often. Perhaps use higher quality plywood.
The dust deputy is mounted to one side so I would have room to pile stock.
If you want to see a video of how well this works (and the inspiration for this) :
