My main purpose of this build was to build a dust collection box for my dewalt planer that was low profile enough to fit under my work bench. The video shows some of the trouble I ran into trying to get this to work…..

Just watched your video a little bit ago. I’m always fascinated with how creatively you find solutions to your needs.

I’m about to install a box in the wing of my tablesaw based on your idea.

Nice! Looks like it will make for a clean shop!

Is the laminated mdf permanently installed in place of the deck and wings? Is that to ensure a level infeed and outfeed? I can not get mine wings adjusted well, and I like this idea.

-- I do this for fun.

Nice solution for two problems. Thanks for including the design process and evolution in the video.
