    I like your vacuum table. I'll have to do something similar. how tall is the void inside the vac table, and what do you use to move the air?

    I basically used 2 sheets of 4mm plywood. The top and bottom are single sheets each, and the middle layer is off-cuts, so the void is only about 4mm. I just use a simple cheapo shopvac. I was mostly inspired by this video:

    Cool. That’s much thinner than I thought. How good is the suction?

    May I also ask you about the L-cheapo laser? Was this the one you used? L-Cheapo

    What are you thoughts on it so far, and could you post pics of the mount? I’ve been hunting around for my laser and the 10w is at the top of my list.
