Easy but effective hood for DeWalt miter saw. Can’t cut 45s but it slips out if I need too, only so much room to work with. The 4” dust collector hose hooks in below bench in box and 1.5” hose come through bench on right side of saw and connects into saw port. Built with 5/8” MDO, love this stuff cause it smooth on face, seals great and looks nice. It’s nothing special but tested the first version and it was simple but extremely effective so built the permanent one here. Top of box extends out to saw within 1/2” of touching back of arm when saw is pushed all the way back and arm is up. Angled peg board provides great suction compared to just being a wide open box. Added a couple pictures to show lower box that dust collector hose will hook into. Drop down shelf on hinges (picture shown) since this saw extends out way further than my previous 10” miter saw. Shelf folds up flat under bench with 3/8” x 6” hex bolt thru top of shelf then up thru bench and wing nut, this way I can have space in front of bench if I pull out saw. Hopefully back to finish it in a couple days.

It’s hard to tell what you have going on, there. Maybe add a couple more pics?
