    With respect to the hangers you made, which are awesome I might add, I was wondering if you thought it was necessary to double up the bracket sides for strength or it was done for esthetics?

    I watched your 5 part series and thoroughly enjoyed it. Keep up the good work.

      Hi Duane,

      I guess that a single piece of of ½” ply would adequately hold up the dust collection pipe. I thought that the design of these would look good and went with it. Probably overkill, and it took a long time, but I think the results were good. I’m glad you enjoyed the series. Thanks for your kind comments.

      All the best,
