I’d go with a ceiling mount air cleaner.

Since you’re using hand tools, there shouldn’t be that much dust thrown into the air. You should consider moving your techniques away from any dust generating tools like sandpaper, and move to more of your smoothing plane/scraper techniques.

One of the greatest things about handtools is that you’re generating chips, not dust. (for the most part!)
