I think that a tent is a good idea, as the dust can be very fine, and  
floats in the air sometimes, even with a shop vac. The Vac gets a lot  
of it, but the exhaust tends to make the rest travel. Maybe an  
arrangement like a shower curtain hanging from the ceiling?  Clear to  
let in light, on traveller so that you can move it for big pieces? It  
takes a while to get the right set up, but time spent arranging the  
shop space is never wasted.
