I had everything in my shop rigged up on my dust collector except my miter saw. Today I took some 1/2” Birch plywood and built a box for it. I had some silicone so I used it to seal all the joints just because.

Hand tool, 30” wide and 24” high. I went about 8” behind the saw. Make sure you turn the miter saw to 45 degrees to make sure your wide enough.

Bogey,
I have it on a 650 CFM dust collector from Rockler all by itself. It does the job!!

Wise it doesn’t get tv but it does catch almost all my dust.

I’m really proud it made Top 3 today

Im in a small shop now so dust collection for me will be a bigger consideration. I was looking for some ideas, i can check this off my list. Thanks for posting and congrats on the top three. It doesnt get tv though so i might have to do some redesigning. Hope you dont mind if i steal your idear.

If you can incorporate some front coverage, you’ll get a tremendous amount of additional collection. I used Plexiglas on mine

Anytime you can tame dust from this machine is surely nice.

Duckster, That’s a great idea and very nice design. I’m new to woodworking and just setting up my “post-retirement” DIY shop. This site is a goldmine of great ideas. Thank you for your contribution. This will be one of my first projects.
