Nice way to recycle! Well done.

Did you make any provision for dust collection or air flow in the box?

No, not yet in the box. My dust collector picks up the most dust, but there is some dust coming into the cabinet. I would like to have an air overpressure, so my dust collector in the fence can pick up everything

That's a great video !!! I love the stop action movement of tools, the items jumping into your hands ... very nice humor breaks.

Nice table. Very well done tutorial for building one. I was wondering, though ... why didn't you inset the router a little, to give you more bit cutting edge above the table top? It looks like you'd need it if using smaller shaping bits.
