Zen Enclosure

I finally quit cutting stuff long enough to enclose the machine. I used 1/2 mdf and a sheet of lexan. I need to add a light. It cut down on the noise a lot and seems to contain most of the dust.

Do you worry about chip/dust buildup? Or do you just vacuum the whole thing at once after your part is made?
