When the board is first rough sawn from the log, it is a true 2" x 4" (5,08cm x 10,16cm), but the drying process and planing of the board reduce it to the finished 1.5" x 3.5" size (89x38).
Awesome job, glad you liked it!
Hello,I updated the instructable based on user feed back and it now folds up, check it out!Hunter
Penolopy Bulnick Thank you for the kind words and for looking!Hunter
CoquihallaDuck, All it takes is one. I’m sure others have read and even adopted your suggestions, they have just never publicized them. Thank you for sharing. Hunter
charlessenf-gm No, it does not fold up flat, but it does fold up enough to fit in my car. Thanks for looking.
Capt Caveman Hey, thank you for the tip and for looking. While I like your enthusiasm, I would caution you on making it foldable in the middle as you suggest. It might fold up on you while you were standing on it.
perec3 Thakn you for the kind words and for looking!
handyhelp thank you for your wisdom. I will endeavor to create a modification to my original design to accommodate yours, Brianaala and others suggestions. Thank you for looking!
Hey, thank you for looking and voting!
CoquihallaDuck thank you for looking and I might try and incorporate you suggestion into a modified design.
Brainaala,Yes, you are correct. It lays flat enough to fit in the trunk of my car.Your suggestion of offsetting the legs could work.Thank you for looking,Hunter

Thank you for taking the time to post this, this was just what I needed. After the original painting I used a clear natural oil finish to seal the wood. The photo does not do the final colours justice, they are deeper variations of the first picture. Tip, add food colour "color" to your keyword list.

Thank you for posting this, this is just what I needed to keep the dust out of my shop vac.
In you instructions you note to "Cut away the 2” outer section". You then go on to mention "and partially so i could tune the system later (which ended up not being needed)". But in your final picture you can see the slot is wider than the 2" slot in your instructions.I made the dust separator based on your design but it does not work very well (only about a third of the dust gets separated), what size is the slot in your final working model?Thank you,Hunter
I had the hoses on backwards... it works great now!
Great idea, can you provide a picture or description that shows the setup with the separator and a shop vac?Thank you,Hunter
Yeah, well, maybe if I had watched the first video I wouldn't have asked a stupid question...
