The plans

If anyone is interested, I'm about 50% done my own.

This is a step by step guide to making one on your own with a budget. I have not finished the project nor the guide so hold off on stuff that might be missing.
Thanks

I am not positive that the pictures will show up but hope so. I am new to the group and am also looking at sand blasting cabinet ideas. The pictures are something I found elsewhere. It is a filter system for the sandblaster. You take a container that will seal tight. Cut a piece of pvc at an angle and insert thru a hole cut in the lid to where it is just off the bottom. Install another piece of pvc that just entends thru the lid. Put in a few inches of water and close. Run a hose from cabinet to the pvc that extends to the bottom and from the other pvc, run the hose to the shop vac. The water will filter out the dust. When done simply dump the container and rinse out.

This will definitely be a part of any cabinet design I end up with.

I like that idea and I think I'll include that in my design. It kind of reminds me of the old Rainbow vacuum cleaners. You have to be pretty old to remember them

I must be pretty old then. I almost took a part time job selling them years ago (I thought it was not that long ago though).

A shop vac works great. I use both a bag filter in it as well as the standard paper filter. Mine has NO air inlet holes. This keeps the box in a negative pressure so dust does not escape when your not sand blasting. The air from your hose as you sand is the incoming air. Works great. A light inside is a must. I use a 2ft florescent light mounted to the top. Look into getting some window film as well. otherwise your window gets pitted up and hard to see through. Ask me how I know.

If you look at the top of this page I give a link to the construction of my cabinet. Unfortunately I had to bust out and go the UK for a month, that's where Im at now. I'll be back next week to finish it up and to finish the tutorial. I did make provisions for a shop vac but I mounted the hole for it on the very top. I also plan on using the water method, I think that's brilliant.
Sorry about the age tinlid, haha, I just remember my Mom buying one in the late 70's if Im not mistaken. Heck I didn't even think they were still around
