  1. This table really sucks...downdraft sucking that is!

    Wanting to build a downdraft/outfeed table for a while now since I do a lot of sanding/shaping/carving with my intarsia, I searched LJ and the internet for ideas. I was happy with a style that I found through Clint Wenthur, the link to his project blog is here...
  2. Downdraft Table - Mobile

    Finished my mobile downdraft table. Same construction as my recently posted mobile sanding station. It's 48" x 25", and 36" tall. The top is split into 3 sections, each being about 13.5" x 19.5". Each of the sections has a lip to hold a piece of 1/4" pegboard (for now). For smaller...
  3. Oscillating Sander and Down Draft Cabinet

    Removing dust is a must in a small home shop. Vacuuming the floor takes time and gets old real quick. Two areas in my shop still needed needed attention. This cabinet provides a place to for my new Rigid Oscillating Sander and also has a section for use of hand sanders (top of the right side is...
  4. Benchtop Sander Table - Downdraft Table

    I hate sawdust! It is by far my biggest nemesis when I'm woodworking. I hate it! I've installed some VERY basic sawdust removal tubes in some of my power tools. It's great for the big dust, but the kind I HATE the most is the really fine powdery sawdust. It coats everything. This sawdust is...
  5. Benchtop Downdraft Sanding Table

    I put together this downdraft benchtop sanding table from some scraps I had laying around the shop from other projects. I started with a small pieces of ½" MDF, ½" ply, 1/8" pegboard and a leftover 45 degree PVC elbow. The size was somewhat determined by the scrap pieces, but the long MDF...
  6. Assembly/Downdraft table

    Eight years ago I took a small log cabin down, cut the logs up in to 4' links, and burned them in an outside boiler. I could tell this cabin was at least 100 yeas old and had some dry rot… so firewood was a good use of the logs. But the floor joists looked to be in good shape. They where...
  7. Miter Saw - Downdraft work station

    I had a work bench/assembly table that I added drawers to and that worked fine but two things I really wanted to add to the shop were a down draft table for the sanding I do and a way to support wood when I used the miter saw which is often. I went to Ikea and bought a solid oak counter top, 1...
  8. Down Draft Table - Quick and Easy Plans - Pics Added 1/28

    I may be jumping the gun a bit by posting this project already, but I am done with the wood working aspects and just need to drop in the two pairs of Rockler Down Draft Table Panels onto the ledge, then attach the 4" Dust Collection Port. I went looking for the panels and came across the free...
  9. Downdraft/sanding table/air purifier

    This a a downdraft table I made using an old furnace fan blower from a furnace that was replaced in my house. It sat around for 15 years until I decided to put it to use. The fan is wired for 4 speeds so I can control the flow of air in the shop. I used peg board glued to 1/4" plywood for the...
  10. Downdraft table

    This is a downdraft table idea I got from fellow Lumberjock Greg the Whodat. I too have dust problems when making my "art" boxes. I used a 2ft x4ft piece of 3/4" plywood then framed it with 1×4 yellow pine. I cut the hole out to accomidate the rockler downdraft inserts. I then cut 2" pieces...
  11. FOLD DOWN DOWNDRAFT HOODED SANDING/ROUTING BOOTH

    Made this sanding booth from material I had on hand and it works super. The idea of making a booth which is made from house wrap to capture more of the dust that tends to get blown past the edge of the table by the sander or router . The other thought is that I need something compact to be...
  12. Downdraft Sanding Table

    Just finished up a revamp of my Downdraft Sanding Table. I added some new features and did a full video on the build. My favorite part is the knockdown side barrier to help corral the dust. Always continuing the war on dust! You can see the full video here: And the blog post here...
  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello All! I am in the process of reworking my shop, it is 24X30. Trying to get sawdust under control. I want to build a combination outfeed and downdraft table. I am having trouble on the design. Using a used squirrel cage and planning on a 1" thick top with 1 " holes spaced 2" apart. What...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all, I'm getting into woodworking (now that i've got space) and hope to learn a lot here. I started my first project - built in cabinet for a entertainment center. I think I bit off more than I could chew! I'm just trying to make a straight edge cut with my radial saw. I went to sears and...

    Downdaft sanding table Guess it's not technically a table per se maybe a downdraft table top. My last table just so happened find it's way to the burn pile, it was a total pos and needed to be permanently retired. The dims are roughly 36"x24"x7-1/4" and made from 1/2" BB ply, 1/4" pegboard...
