Dexter-Style Conversion of an Apartment into a Workshop

My woodworking workshop/bookbinding studio is located in my mother’s apartment. She lives in Romania for the better part of a year, and I put the place to a good use for the remaining 10-11 months =)

The major problem is sawdust. It is everywhere. My dust collection system is far from the best, and lots of particles evade being suctioned into a special bucket. This may be a problem during classes (no one likes to find wood shavings on their newly bound books), but what’s even more important in my situation, I need to protect my mother’s things, including books.

That’s why every year I pass through a Dexter-style stage of transforming the apartment into a workshop.

Do you have any similar restrictions/limitations at your workshop? =)
