A while back I remember seeing an article, in a magazine, on how to
build your own downdraft sanding table. For the life of me, I can't
seem to find the article in my magazines...anyone remember
seeing/reading it and know which issue it was?

Real Lalonde's Air Filter / Downdraft Table
Downdraft Table and Air Clean
I designed my own table with a Cherry frame and pegboard top to fit in
my 24" square work station. The collector piping is 1-1/4" and 2" PVC
with the total area of the bored holes 20% less than the cross
sectional area of the 2" header. Collector holes are oriented to the
bottom of the box to keep dust from building up. A few support blocks
glued under the pegboard makes a stable work surface. The box is stored
in a rack with my other workstation units.
