A pegboard surface provides a convenient way to pull dust down into the dust collector of this sanding table (photo, right, and drawing, below).
The table is a simple box that houses a baffle to channel the flow of air inside the table. A hole is cut into one side of the box to hook up a shop vacuum or dust collector.
The pegboard top is what really makes this table work. It acts as a sanding platform and helps funnel dust down into the box. To improve the airflow into the box, I drilled a shallow countersink into the existing holes, as you can see in the detail drawing.
