    A little shop clean-up and a bonus

    Since I got half the day off due to weather I decided to do some cleanup in the shop today. About half of my shop was cluttered up with boxes spread out from our move a couple of months back. Mostly stuff my wife still needs to go through and sort out for a garage sale. I ended up moving this to the back corner, stacking it in isles for her to still be able to access them, then moved the trailer over by my side garage door. Overall, I cleared out a nice 20' X 20' space.

    As you can see one of my next projects needs to be a wood and sheeting rack.


    The bonus was coming across a whole box full of hardware that I had forgot about. Had several sets of casters, some knobs and threaded inserts I bought for making jigs, a few drawer glides, and some hinges that I was about to go buy anyway.

    It's good that you can at least still recognize space when you see it, considering you probably aren't used to seeing it in a shop.

    (I should talk. At least Brent has enough room in his to move things around for a re-org.)

    Harsh, down right harsh! Hey, 5 of us were in that shop. We couldn't see each other, but we were all in there!

    Bill, I figured Sharon would appreciate some empathy, but you did prove my other point. We could only fit about three of us at a time in my shop when you guys were here. You gotta admit I don't have a lot of dancin' room in there.

    I'm scared to clean my shop ! Never know what one would find.
    Wheels are always a good find. Now you have to do the work of making the skids for them.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
