I decided to make a rolling stand for my spindle Sander and all of my other individual finishing and belt sanders. The fold-down sanding table allows me to hook up a 2 1/2 inch line to either the vacuum or my dust collector. Now I need to make a third stand for my planer and then I will have a threesome.

Those holes in the peg board area way to small.
Even for a vac. But if you put a DC on that, you’ll starve it.

Figure 3/8 if you are using a DC and use a countersink to smooth the holes out.

I agree w/woodchuckerNJ about the hols. Won’t suck anything.

The rest of the station should be in your living room! Very nice piece of furniture!

I might agree with your assumption IRT the dust collector, but the number of holes and their total area exceeds a 2.50 inch opening for the wet vac. In fact, when I connect the vacuum, there is NO change In the sound at all.

That’s too pretty for shop furniture… Some of my inside the house furniture isn’t as nice!
