The dusty area (some project background) is where most sawdust-generating in the workshop area should take place. This is to prevent this dust getting to more sensitive equipment, such as laser cutters (obviously) and metalwork machinery (mill, lathe) where sawdust could attract damp and cause rusting.

For now, the area simply contains the dust created. Sweeping up and vacuuming is still necessary, as is the wearing of breathing-protective masks (available in the Safety Equipment area), easpecially when working with more hazardous material such as MDF and plywood.

A rack holds the main dusty tools for use in this area, others and accessories such as sanding sheets are contained within large stacking plastic tubs. (Photos to follow Dclarke (talk) 06:18, 4 February 2014 (EST))
