Making objects out of wood is lovely, but it can a messy profession. I've been trying to tackle dust control this past year to some success. I upgraded my dust collector with a pleated filter, and installed an air filtration unit. These additions are doing a good job of keep the dust out of my lungs and out of our house.

To build upon the cleanliness theme, Kelly commissioned our friend Iris to make me a wonderful shop apron. I love it. It's my favorite shop improvement of 2010. So simple.

  2. I'm trying! but for the last week I've been at the drafting board.
