Tablesaw Sanding Table

A built-in dust chute links it directly to your shop vacuum or dust collector. We designed this sanding table to fit a 10" JET Contractor's Saw.

We designed this sanding table to fit a 10" Jet Contractor's Saw. You'll probably have to alter the table's size to fit your particular saw. Dust catchers such as ours aren't meant to replace dust-collection devices you're already using. This one is a site-specific accessory that helps you manage the fine dust that results from using a handheld pad sander. Note also the handy built-in tool tray for storing sanding blocks, pushsticks, and other workshop items.

Build the table as shown in the Exploded View below to fit your particular saw. We used a piece of perforated hardboard to mark the numerous hole locations. Drill the holes and then countersink them slightly. Use a piece of duct out the back of the unit to fit your dust-collection system or shop vacuum.
