I finally got the case glued and screwed together. One thing you will notice is that Norm’s cabinet used biscuits and glue to keep the rear panel free of any screws but I decided since there will be a PVC pipe coming out of the back that visible screws aren’t going to hurt the look at all.

I also improved on the dust collection pipe mounting. I found a fitting at Home Depot (I think it is a reducer bushing) that has the same basic I.D. and O.D. as the 2” PVC pipe. The main difference is that the bushing has a small flange on it so that when the 2” tee is glued on the plywood will be sandwiched in between the two and should never pull out of the case. The photo doesn’t show it too well but the bottom of the hole is lined up with the shelf just like the original plan so that no chips or dust should build up before exiting.
