Limited workshop space led one reader to add an air-filtration system to his mobile workbench.

My basement workshop has a low ceiling, so I can't effectively mount an air-filtration system overhead. Rather than having the cleaner in a fixed and inconvenient location, I decided to make it part of a mobile workbench.

The air cleaner sits on top of a sheet of 3/4" rigid foam to absorb sound and vibration. I also added a power strip to the bench for extra versatility. It works especially well as a sanding and finishing table, but I avoid using the bench for heavy pounding because that might damage the cleaner.
