Looks pretty nice, I like how you stacked your Dustopper on top of your vacuum. Did you use PVC pipe? Does the pipe rest in the accessory slots of the vacuum base?

I was working on my own design this weekend, will try to get some pictures up when it is completed.

Hi WoodFrog. Yes, PVC - it almost fits perfectly on the accessory slots. I left the handle off the vacuum and the casters are a little on the lame side. There are a number of good videos on YouTube. The second elbow was a challenge until I discovered that if you get the Shop-Vac right angle brush (https://www.lowes.com/pd/Shop-Vac-1-...-Brush/1060273), you can just pop off the brush part and you have a perfect elbow for the Dustopper to Vacuum hose.

Very functional and clean look. The hinged top is a great idea that should make changing bits much simpler. I found that the fence integrated DC takes care of about 90% of the dust.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks Charles - I'm thinking about an under table vacuum port for when I'm cutting dadoes since the dust won't even be able to "see" the port on top.
