Messing around with ideas for homemade sandblast cabinet.

If anyone has any suggestions I am all ears. I am going to get all of the dimensions and make a materials list for it also.

Just Kidding, looks really nice!
You want to build it for yourself. Your Height, your arm length. Might make the legs adjustable height so you can fine tune it instead of guessing. Also take a piece of cardboard & cut the arm holes in it as a trial & error... I think you'll be surprised how much playing you do before you have it comfy.

Second...Nice plan. You should definitely build it. What were you thinking of for materials?

George, I know this is going to be one of your next projects. I found this for you to do a little stuying on before you build yours.

Hope you enjoy this little read.
I agree the pot blaster would be a lot faster, I don't know if I like the idea of having to empty the cabinet and refill the pot all the time. Although now that I have enough air and as long as I keep good tips on the valve then it might last longer then I think it will before refills.

George, I have a couple recommendations. Once it is built block off the area it is located so that you can't possibly set anything in front or around it without working hard to do so. I know it sounds like obstacles to move around but it will beat tripping over stuff when you are sand blasting, or having to move things just to use it on a small project. Dad bought a Harbor Freight sand blast cabinet a few year ago, and we have used it mabey 5 times because we can't get to it most the time! Also, the other recommendation I have is a good one, make certain before you try it out that ALL seams are sealed with something durable, otherwise you could have beach front property to your sand blaster LOL.
Burrying the cabinet behind other stuff wouldn't be a good idea LOL. It is going to be almost right beside the air compressor so there will be less tendency to put stuff in front of it.
