    The annoying thing is that the small cyclones are rarely designed for a home user, and even when they are (like Clearvue) they aren't available.

    Build one - its not rocket surgery.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    I often spend time building stuff, i find it quite relaxing and gets me out side. I started building shit years ago with the odd subwoofer enclosure to full boot installs, now i own a home so its cabinets, fences and my most recent - an Activity Table for the kids.

    I went a bit overboard and made this waaaaay more complicated than it could have been. I started in SketchUp where i went through a few design iterations and eventually settled on this;


    I then tested how it would go together by printing a prototype with a 3D Printer. I was glad i did this as there were a few things that needed changing - mainly i added hidden legs to support the table more.



    All the sizes & angles came from the SketchUp model and turned out pretty well. I did need to use a little bog because my cutting tolerances were not that precise. you can see the hidden leg supports if you look closely.



    I let the kids chose the colours for the table, was pretty fun as i just sat them in front of the computer and tried different colours in SketchUp until they were happy. Then off to bunnings for a few test pots.



    I think it turned out really well, kids love it and use it every day - its bloody heavy though and i dont think i will build something that retarded again.

    Great forum, not Australian based but that's life. Plenty of threads on various aspects of woodwork to provide some inspiration.

    Yeah, WWF is the basis of some of my reflections above. Want to buy a tablesaw? Minimum you should buy is a Dewalt 745.... $900. Want to cut some dovetails? That calls for specialist Japanese dovetail saws.
