Looks great Josh. For yourself or someone else? If yourself I assume SWMBO
was quite happy with it.
Looks like you planed or resawed the 2x4 down; what was the final thickness?
Looks like you could have used a 1x6 instead of the 2x4 and avoided the edge
join for the sides. Would a 1x6 have worked?

Thanks Larry. Yeah, it's for someone else who found my website and
wondered if I'd make this as a gift for a friend.
I did resaw and planed down the 2x4 to a thickness of about 1/2 inch
after I cut that profile on the sides. For the front panels I had to do
a glue up, but no big deal really. I didn't have any 1x6, but If I had
that certainly would've worked. I also thought that making it out of a
2x4 would be an interesting challenge on an otherwise very simple project.

It's not easy. I've got a shopvac, and a couple windows. During one
summer I borrowed a box fan and did the furnace filter thing, but I had
to give the fan back. Now I just wait till the dust settles and I
vaccum. As of yet I'm too cheap to put money out for a dust collector.
I've been eying the new Jet with the canister style filter and the
plastic bag collector, but its a little out of my price range. And any
of the cheaper dust collectors don't seem to have collection under 30
microns, so it doesn't really seem like a good value. Thanks for the
