I can't be of a lot of use to you, but i seen an article on the table a few week ago. The one i seen was about 14 to 16 in. x 34- RI 36 in. It was using the pegboard top in a box, that had a 4 in. black flex tubing going to the dust collector. I hope that gives you some ideas, Also, check the back issues of the American woodworker, or the Woodworkers Journal. I believe that the article was in one of those. It may be that you will have to run a search, otherwise.
