Here's a good site on one persons experiments in sizing and designing a downdraft table.
Bill's Cyclone Dust Collection Research - Dust Collection Downdraft Table
I've mentioned Bill before regarding dust collection. I don't take him as the end-all of DC but he has far more research in one place on the topic than I've seen anywhere else. It'd be worth your time to look over the site; he provides the basis for his findings so you can reality-check them yourself.
I'm still digesting some of the ramifications of some of his findings. They seem legit.
Check out the build by TRN_Diesel in his gallery @ http://www.routerforums.com/show-n-t...g-station.html. You might get some ideas from this project.
I've been wanting to build one to sit on top of the router table. Take the router and insert out, put the box on top, turn on the DC and go to town.
The table is 24x36 so that should be big enough for most things I do.
