Quite a few years ago. Sons friend’s having their first baby and wanted to build a cradle. He bought some plans . He had limited woodworking experience but wanted to help. So we spent about a week and a half on it in my shop. I think he got bit by the woodworking bug started buying some tools. Hopefully he is enjoying himself.

Great job. Both in the cradle and with teaching.

Looking at your DC, is that 4” pipe? And how does it work for you? Trying to design one for my shop build.

Coming out of collector is 7” pipe goes down to 6” then large machine (drum sander, planer, table saw , jointer,shaper) all 5”. the rest 4”. Oneida 2HP internal filter they designed whole system for free. Everything works great but like to go with outside filter easier to clean. Hope you look at workshop pics better views of everything.
