    spring cleaning... & a Question

    After my winter making cutting boards, I had a bit of sawdust warming the floor of the shop... I also was stuck with a very small aisle in which to walk around with my benches pulled out from the wall after insulating the one wall last fall. Well, now that things are slowly getting warmer, at least to where I'm not going to get frostbite I decided it was time to clean up.

    before:




    and after an hour or so of sorting moving and even installing a sheet of plywood behind the bench (horizontally, I'm putting pegboard above it) I had this:





    Still lots of clutter on the bench, but it is a relatively Organized clutter.
    That section of the reflectix above the benches is where I'll be putting the pegboard. Should I mount it directly to the studs ,or should I put up a couple of 3/4 thick boards to stand them off of the wall just a bit?


    Oh, and here's Why my shop is up on blocks instead of directly on grade:

    ayup, and it isn't just the standing water, the ground all the way around up to the house is squishy, those are just the low points.

    ned, first project of the warm weather, put in that top step dude!

    btw, I dont see anything wrong with the clutter as long as you can find what you need, then just push it all to one side to work, then push it back to the other side when you gotta do something else.

    is there insul behind the reflector stuff? if so why have the reflector stuff on there? does the reflector add that much r value? other than that yu will need to have space for the pins to work the reflector may give enough for that part but will make the wall area wavy i would use furring strips.

    Wow almost bought a house with a yard like that and basement too. Luckily we checked it out one more time just after a good rain spell. Anywhere to put a french drain in to drain to? Or are all the neighboring yards that flat?

    Hark do I see a 10 year project sitting in a puddle of water?

    Ned it looks like you have all kinds of room in there you just have to find it.

    As to the pegboard stand off, I would. If you mount flat to the surface the pegs will dig into your pretty silver stuff.
