Thanks for the advice Michael. I’ve got more organized now. I vacuum regularly and wear a decent mask when needs be. I also bought a scrub plane that significantly reduces the amount of effort required to square stock. Generally though as I get used to, and more confident with the tools there is less dust. Rip sawing more slowly and letting the saw do the work for example. I do have a piece of mahogany which I think I will need to be careful with – but I will save this for the time being until my skill level has increased a bit more.
