DIY Downdraft Table Sanding Box
“Okay, so we all (at least the sane ones) hate sanding. BUT, I hate it a little less after making this awesome downdraft table / sanding box. It’s a super simple construction and I made mine from scrap cutoffs of 1/2″ MDF and plywood along with some 1/4″ pegboard and a dust fitting. I made mine to accept a 4″ dust port, but this will work with any vacuum or shop vac, you’ll just have to gauge the suction and make sure you don’t go too big where it isn’t effective. After you build this, your lungs will thank you!”
My husband’s wood shop is in our garage, and after he finishes sanding a project, there’s man glitter (ahem, sawdust) EVERYWHERE. This DIY Downdraft Table Sanding Box is a huge help in preventing the sawdust from getting on everything, and I highly recommend you build one for your wood shop.
