As we all know woodworking involves a lot of sanding, and that makes a lot of dust in the air. So yesterday I found an old extractor, it was from my growroom but still works. I made a box with joinery, painted the fan black and as usual gave it a mahogany finish, I think it makes a nice contrast, what do you think??

Looks good. I use floor box fans & tape 20” x 20” furnace filters on the inlet side.

Very nice…you should use some sort of flter to catch the dust before it causes problems by getting into the fan motor

-- Wood for projects is like a good Fart..."better when you cut it yourself" Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does
