As seen in our Best Miter Saw Dust Collection Hood YouTube video, this works very well to capture dust from making a mess in your workshop. It also helps protect your lungs from the damaging effects of breathing in sawdust.
This 7 page plan provides step-by-step instructions to build this dust hood. It is intended for woodworkers with a medium skill level. This dust hood will NOT work with a shop vac - you must use a dust collector as a vacuum cannot move enough air to capture the dust from a miter saw.
The plan is provided in a PDF format so it is viewable/printable from any computer or device.
