    Shop While Working - Not So Neat

    I have gotten more than one comment on how organized or clean my shop appears. I always get a smile out of that as you only get to see what is "on camera". Well, I ran a bit short of time today and so was leaving the shop without my usual 'end of day' pick up effort. As I turned to hit the lights, I saw this:

    I agree with you Glen, it is a real mess, you should be ashamed............ NOT

    Sure some extra things can be picked up, but heck you can still see the floor right

    I have to keep on top of keeping my shop clean and picked up, I have absolutely NO SPACE to put a mess

    Cheers!

    WAY too much visible benchtop and bare floor. Not even close, man. But hey, if YOU think it's dirty, then I guess that's all that matters.
