Using a Garden Rake to Collect Wood Shavings Instead of a Shop Broom
posted on August 1, 2008 by Woodworker's Journal
Raking wood chips rather than sweeping them Larger and wet wood chips can be easily moved and collected using a standard garden rake.

Cleaning up a big pile of fluffy or wet shavings after an evening of turning can give your shop broom a real workout. I find that a small garden rake kept near the lathe does a better job with less effort, and the tines don’t wear out as quickly as broom bristles.
