I just finished installing a basic dust collection system inside my mobile workbench, so in this video, I’ll demonstrate how I added a built-in downdraft sanding station that can easily be capped for more workspace when not in use. To create it, I’m installing a box with a pegboard on top to allow sawdust to filter down and an opening below to attach a hose to my shop vac.
