I have thought about building one of these myself.
What are you using to collect the dust? DC? or Shop vac?

I just use a shop vac, hose fits into the hole on the end.

Are you finding it effective? I too have considered them a number of times. To date I had just been buy sanders that enable a hose to fit to them, and then to a vac.

Lately I have been expanding the sanding to air run tooling, and unfortunately the ones I can afford, do NOT offer dust collection, so I think something like this will be in the near future, cause the sanders are working very well, but there are fines everywhere.

Thanks for posting.

Looks handy….you may want to enlarge the holes to increase air flow sometime.

This is handy enough, the best way is to attach a vac directly to the sander. This is not a perfect system but it is sufficient. Also the amount of “dust “ you collect depends on how much power your vac has and the size of the project you are working on, this table is approximately 2×2.

That’s a dandy idea. I’m wondering do you find the pegboard top stiff enough or would a couple of spacers be useful to keep it flat?

For what it is designed for ( smaller projects the stiffness is fine
