Default Dust mat

What do you use to clean saw dust off your feet so it doesn't track through the house? Drug house gets so full of sawdust so quickly after a few times through I need to clean off the rug.

I have one of those foot scrapers that hold both feet and is covered with round brushes, then a mat inside the door.

I take mine off on the front porch before I go inside. What did you want it to say Everend? I can change it.
Danman1957 and Daikusan like this.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I was trying to say, "The mat gets so full of sawdust so quickly after only a few times through the door I need to clean off the rug." I thought about trying to edit it but started laughing each time I read it like that, so I decided to let everyone else find humor in it too.

If you have that much sawdust I think you may need more dust collection at your tools.
I do have a small rug type mat at the door of the shop but it is good for at least a few weeks before it needs cleaning.

My shop (garage) is attached so it's strait from the sawdust into the house. I wear work boots, so not the easiest to remove each time. Also I have a 5 & 6 year old boys, so I'm fighting a loosing battle but who knows maybe someone out there has a brilliant idea.

TRUE. My biggest offenders are
1. Table Saw - I have the DW745. It does have dust collection below but the problem is with this design the side of the lower blade guard is only about 2/3 up the blade. The upper portion of the blade is open (under the table) so when the blade is tilted the guard doesn't hit the bottom of the table. I've thought about trying to fabricate a flexible shield but it's never made it high enough on the list of projects.
2. Round over bit in Colt - I've seen various shop built dust collection ideas for this one, just haven't got around to making any yet. I did buy dust ports for my new Dewalt router but they don't get enough of the dust to justify the frustration of wrangling the hose.
3. Circular saw - I really want to get a track saw and throw the Makita away.
4. Surface planer DW734 - the dust port doesn't stay put on the tool
5. actually... that's a long list that could keep going but dinner's hot so...

I'm actually considering buying a second pair of work boots . Walk to the mud room and swap boots .
I'm fat , so I leave my laces loose so that my steel toe boots slide off and on like slippers
