« Part 1: Redoing the floor sweep. Part 2 of Scrap Plywood and PVC Dust collection upgrades. series no next part

Well, it took me far too long, but I finally got up off my can and dug out the wye and cut the S&D pipe to install the floor sweep… I try not to run power tools after 9:00 P.M. and I sure am hoping nobody noticed, but I did have to make a couple of cuts with the miter saw to get this done…

I haven’t yet managed to actually test the kitty litter tub router table dust hood yet, but tomorrow is a good day to do that…

So testing, and photos to come tomorrow!

Actually it’s after midnight, so would that be today?

I planed it so it would fit the overhead….....hmmmmm…......well, guess I will have to publish this to make it understandable. Was hoping to get my block plane into action, but still had some hand tool fun. The project table base is coming right along, with any luck will get the woodworking done tomorrow. Junk plywood, and stud lumber. As planned, very heavy and rigid….....overbuilt so I can use this table like a workbench, except that it will be portable….....barely.
