This is my first, simple plywood project with my new Shapeoko Pro. Top is cut from some cheap bc plywood.
I don’t have a great dust collection system, but something that works “good enough” for now is the Dustopper “dust collection” system from Home Depot that fits on a bucket.
Dragging a bucket around that’s attached to my vacuum was a pain! So I stole an idea off of the Googles and built this.
I wish I would have bored out some holes for a handle in the design, but I’ll end up retrofitting one on later. Good enough is good enough for now.
Mix of ABS and PVC because the orange big box didn’t have enough parts in PVC or ABS to complete it!
I used my laser cutter on some cardboard to test that the diameter of the bucket lip was correct.
A laser + cardboard is one of my favorite ways of prototyping things quickly to test things without wasting material.
2" ABS/PVC Pipe
2" ID Pipe Couplers (for the base of the pipe)
2" ID Pipe Caps (for the top of the pipe)
Your choice of bolt + washer + nut to attach the top to the top of the pipe [I still need to add a washer under the lock washer… doh]
