I saw lots of workbenches with built-in downdraft sanding areas but for the small shop people we needed a simple box that can be put away when not in use to recover bench or shop space for other tasks. This seemed like a much easier design project than it turned out to be. Getting the inner braces shaped right to maintain good dust flow across the whole box and thereby good suction all of the board took a bunch of trial and educated error.

To make the Downdraft Sanding Box more usable when sanding on vertical surfaces we added easy to remove legs that let you stand it up next to where you are sanding. It certainly is not 100% effective but it is a bunch better than a fan or hoping for a cross wind!

Sanding is always a dusty operation but with the Downdraft Sanding Box and your dust collector you can make your shop environment cleaner and safer! We include legs in the plan that let you stand the Downdraft Sanding Box up for more uses!

2-Row Recipe Card Box Plan
This seemed like such a no-brainer when I made the first 2-Row Recipe Card Box but everyone wanted one. I made them from red oak and used finger/box joints on the corners. It's not tough to build but is greatly appreciated!
Band Saw Circle Jig Plan
This is an easy to build jig that makes cutting perfect circles up to nearly 80"-in diameter simple to do. You can make this jig from simple materials that probably are hiding in your shop right now!
