I am interested in a downdraft table or something that I could just hook up to a shop vac. I have seen a couple tables that I could buy, but they are more than I want to spend. I saw that Skil has their X-Bench and you can get a downdraft attachment ths works with a shop vac, but I dont want the bench. I thought of maybe just getting the attachement and building something for it to sit in. It just an idea. Any advice would be appriciated. I dont need anything fancy, just something to help keep the dust down and less clean up in the garage.

Quore,
Why don't you just make a box out of 1 x 4's and dado in a piece of 1/4" pegboard on top, 1/4" ply on the bottom. Cut a hole in one side to fit an adaptor for your shop vac. Then cover the pegboard with a couple of pieces of the rubber shelf liner material you can get at walmart for kitchen cabinets. It has a bunch of little holes in it and provides some grip for the piece you are working on.

That is a really good idea. I will look into that. Thanks a lot.


Thanks everyone, for the good ideas. I will be sure to post whatever it is I end up making. Even if it turns out to be a step stool. :)
