The table is made of 3/4” plywood and the box is air tight with a vacuum hose attached to it . I have 5 different size inserts that i can use with it. It does a great job of getting all the sawdust out of the way when sanding. I made the inserts usiing my router with my base plate jig attached to it . Nothing fancy about it !!........Thanks for viewing

Awesome project. I am currently working on my own drill press table with a sanding drum setup. Where did you get the inserts?

Nice Willie, very functional looking. Should keep some of the sawdust away from the workpiece.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

nice build willie, like the size of the table-looks like a good support for drilling also with dust control.

Nice job, I think you will get many yrs of good service out of that. I need to make one for a new drill press I bought.
