        I swear by the technique of getting your husband to do it after he's done the dishes, finished the ironing, mown the lawn... hang on - I'd better be careful !

        You've really got to try to protect your work against dirt and avoid the need to clean it. If that means putting it behind glass in a picture frame or in a display cabinet, then so be it. Glass is much easier to clean.

        However, if your pieces do start to gather dust, I find a large soft make-up brush accompanied by a sharp exhalation from the lungs is the most reliable way to disperse dust safely. Perhaps your wife has something you could use (and I don't mean surplus lung action ).

        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

            Have you thought about running the dusting brush hooked on the end of your vacum hose? Seems to me this would be the best way to get all the little dusty bunnies in it.

              Dusting fretwork . . isn't that what air compressors were made for? To blow out fretwork dust

              Seriously though , my wife is very good at cleaning dust out of my big fretwork clocks. She does it the way Sharon suggested as well as loosening up some of the dust with a 1" paint brush where the size of the vacuum dusting brush won't reach and sucking it in with the crevice tool.

              I don't dust em . . . I just make em'

                  We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.

                  I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.

I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...
