Where does the dust go and how do you empty it? I assume you just beat teh filters when they get clogged and you can re-use them?

use Formica for sloping sides

This is a genius idea. Do you have any plans you could share?

I do not have any plans. I just made it to fit the space I wanted it to set in.

Great idea for a home woodworking space.

i think i might go with a framed backed mesh of some sort, maybe catwalk grading.

If you use grading, you might have to put something over top of it so that your wood doesn't get marred.

If you like this project and decide to build one, please share pictures of you finished product at workshopaddict.com so that we can check it out. That would be so cool.

An excellent down draft table! I've been wanting a solution like this for years and now you've given me some great ideas. I reckon it would also make a good vacuum frame. Your workshop is to be envied!
