I vent mine out the back wall. My shop is on three acres of family land. And my back wall faces down a steep-sloping hill. I also dump a lot of my dust/chips/wood waste down the hill too. Its perfect for my situation but cant work for everyone. I live in coastal California so the heating/cooling is not a problem, and my shop is 100 yards away from the house.

Good discussion. Interesting note about walnut dust killing trees. I never thought of that.

-- Happy woodworking!
