Weather Stripping Keeps Cabinets Clean

Dealing with dust in the shop is something everybody faces. In my shop, it ended up everywhere, even inside the closed cabinets where I store my magazines, shop manuals, and plans.

For starters, I bought a dust collector and an air cleaner. But to keep the dust out of the cabinets, I applied some foam weather stripping around the edge of the cabinet door. It took some trimming around the hinges so the hinges wouldn't bind.

It worked so well on that cabinet that I added weather stripping to the other doors and drawers around my shop. Now my tools stay cleaner.
