>If and when I get my new shop I'm going to install one of the plastic barriers we have talked about a few times in the past. I just finished a 12" natural edge bowl and there are shavings as far away as 10 feet in 2 directions. They went 6 feet up the basement steps. Completely covered the wall and shelves at my back. Rough guestimate is they covered about 100 square feet.

A few minutes of sweeping and shoveling took care of most of the problem. Let's face it, turning bowls is a messy operation. At least this one wasn't wet enough to spread water up the wall and ceiling and no bugs splattered anywhere.
