When building, woodwork things tend to get grubby, and the wood needs
to be kept completely clean on this project. Cleaning it afterwards
has not been very successful in the past. What's the best way to keep
it nice and clean? Washing hands every 20 minutes? Varnish before
A coat of 50% varnish/meths. It depends on what you will be doing with
it after though. You could cut it thinner if it is going to get only
moderate handling. It's one of "those" types of questions I believe?

Sand it and wipe off with a tack cloth. Some use cans of compressed
air. If you are ytalikng about when you work, I use a bib 42" fan
blowing on my project and myself to bkow the dust outside the garage
door. Works fine for me. But then it never have gotten very cold here
in Arkansas since I moved here 3 years ago.

I wear vinyl disposable gloves when I sand, to avoid oils from my hands
spoiling the freshly cleaned surfaces. Other than that, I really don't
worry about it too much. Just be careful about sweat dripping out of
the gloves on a hot day when raising your arms, spoiling a wet finish.

Surfaced wood is clean, so if your hands are clean to begin with, they will
stay that way unless you handle something that isn't clean. When you do, wash
your hands before touching the wood. To keep from contaminating bare wood
surfaces with skin oils, dust your hands occasionally with clean sawdust.
