Building a Small Cyclone Dust Collector

Updated: Nov 19, 2021

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.

  • Shop Vac 3HP 6 Gallon

  • 3/4" plywood for rings & base
