About the plans:
Router table guru and INCRA expert Mark Mueller from Indianapolis spent a little of his shop time to devise an easy to build and extremely effective dust collection system that will be perfect for your router table. The Pivot Door Downdraft uses common hardware store fasteners and fittings and is made with all wood construction. It's a great way to keep your shop cleaner, and the all wood construction provides even better noise suppression than the metal cabinets on the market.
The pivoting door design is great for wide open router access and won't SLAM shut when you forget to close the door before turning on your dust collector. For the cover photo shown above, Mark glued up a decorative panel to dress the design up a bit, but a solid plywood or MDF panel will work just fine. Treat your woodshop, your lungs and your ears to this wonderful project.
