Introduction: Downdraft Table Workbench
Downdraft table for dust collection.
Step 1: MDF
Cut MDF to sit on top of table saw stand.
Step 2: Box
Cut wood boards and a small piece of MDF to fashion a box.
Step 3: Fasten
Step 4: Drill Holes
Drill holes in the top piece of MDF. Use peg board as a template.
Step 5: Smooth
Smooth out the underside of the drill holes with a countersink bit.
Step 6: Plumbing
Attach a tube to connect to a shop vacuum.
Step 7: Caulk
Seal all the seams.
Step 8: Attach Top
Fasten top piece of MDF to the box and seal.
Step 9: Fit
Fit under the table saw.
Step 10: Modification
The vacuum did not pull enough volume of air, so I modified the box to hook up to my dust collector.
I also ended up getting a different table saw, so I decided to use the downdraft table as part of my workbench. I added a small box to contain dust with a second dust collector vent on the side.
Step 12: Downdraft Station
The space is now multipurpose and tools can be swapped out.
We have a be nice policy.
