First project post.

This is my take on a dust deputy vacuum cart. I saw a few on here that were the inspiration. I added a small down-draft insert and some blast gates. This allows me to easily switch between hoses for large tools, small tools, and the down-draft. Made out of 3/4 birch and a melamine top. It was mostly a play it by ear build. Started with a basic drawing and figured out a bunch of it as I went. Now that i have it all worked it i might try to offload it and build another. Kept it the same height as my saw and assembly table so i can use it as an infeed or outfeed. Works really good so far and the easily holds about 10 gallons. Pretty happy with it.

Very well planned out!

I like your drawer (versus the typical bucket). How good is the seal?

I weatherstripped the door, and silconed the whole box and every fitting just to be sure. Used a threaded insert and knob so i can tighten the door down. There aren’t any leaks that i can find.

Love this project.
You got to have a table and need a cyclone but in a small small shop those cyclones and vacs will take up a lot a room so, a win with this setup!!!
One idea is to add a 3/4” door for the vac, this will quiet it down not stop the noise completely but cuts down that high pitched noise.
Close it up completely and the vacs get hot.

Well thought out. You did a great job.

You have the table saw I have been wanting to buy.
