I'm thinking about setting up a woodworking workshop for hobby projects in my basement.
However, my basement is small and my woodworking would take place close to my furnace / hot water heater. Is this a fire hazard with all of the sawdust?
Here is an picture to show the proximity:
As you can see I'm hanging a tarp (not an airtight seal) to contain as much of the saw dust as possible.
Is this a fire hazard?
For reference my furnace is an Armstrong Ultra SX 80 and my hot water heater is a Richmond 6G40S-36F1.
