Mobile Air Filter
Time to send the box fan and furnace filter combo out to pasture. This shop-made version clears dust from the air better and is whisper-quiet too.
Woodworking is messy. Nests of shavings pile up after a hand planing session and a blizzard of chips sprays from a router. At some point, the mess needs to get addressed. The hardest of all to manage is the fine fog of dust that drifts around after sanding or working with MDF. It coats everything in my shop (and the rest of the garage) with a gritty haze. More troublesome is that this same dust can lead to breathing problems over time. Collecting dust at the source is the best option, but no matter the solution, fine dust still migrates throughout the shop. The solution to that is an air cleaner. This project makes a strong case for going your own way rather than buying a commercial air cleaner.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
