Dust collection is very important in my apartment workshop. Just down the hall is the bedroom & bathroom so no dust can escape this room!
For this build I was inspired by many other dust collector videos on Youtube. This is not my original design but it is unique to my shop vac.
Watch the video below for a detailed view on how I built this dust collector.
