I am in the process of updating the dust collection piping in my shop and need blast gates. I have some cheap plastic ones that get dust in them and also rattle. I probably need at least 6 of them.

The good aluminium ones are about $ 12-15 a piece and I think that I want to build my own.

I have looked at lots of videos, project, and blogs.

How many people have made their own and are you happy with them? Any issues with leakage or rattles.

What have you made them from as what I h ave found is a wide variety of materials and thickness. Many are not even finished and I would worry about swelling and warpage.

I am considering using half inch Baltic Birch and finish with poly…..Does this make sense?
