In the simulated image above I am showing the door ornament with the backer boards painted red and the decoration painted white. Red ribbon is used to hang the ornament. This can be cut from 1/4" thick plywood.

Sharing a woodworking shop with HVAC

My new shop is on the unfinished side of the basement. Because of this, I am sharing the space with the HVAC. When I bought the house I knew I would have to protect the HVAC from as much sawdust as possible. I have not started on that project but I will this week.

I received an email from a reader(Jimm G.) suggesting that I make a filter to cover the return air duct that is in the shop. I believe that is a good suggestion but I am looking for other suggestions from someone who is involved in heating and air and is also a woodworker. 
All the ductwork is sealed at the seams with a paint-on sealer. I bought a roll of aluminum tape to seal any missed spaces.

Here is the return air duct that I need to add a filter to. I bought filter material but I am wondering if it is possible to restrict too much air from entering the duct?

The installed HVAC filter is a MERV 11. I know it is not suggested to add too high of a MERV rated filter. I guess it makes the system work harder to keep up. Does anyone know if a MERV 13 filter would be a good tradeoff or is the MERV 11 okay?

I will also be adding more efficient dust collection at all the tools to grab the dust before it ever gets to the HVAC. I have never been a fan of scroll saw dust collectors but I will have to learn to like it. 

My big dust producers are the table saw and sanding equipment. I don't use the planer, bandsaw enough to worry too much about. The drill press seems like a pretty low dust generator. I will build a downdraft table for sanding.  I may upgrade my small dust collector for the table saw. I don't have over-blade dust collection on the table saw. That seems like to point of dust that needs to be addressed.

As you can tell I am still in the investigating stage of this issue. I am open to any suggestions or comments.
