The past 2 days I've been 'attacking' the clutter monster in the shop on and off, and working around other activities:
Look what I found!
using the DC as an oversized shop vac (and picking up impeller damaging sized items first) I made Huge progress in cleaning the shop once and for now... getting the 'last' of the planer poo out of the deepest darkest recesses of the shop. I even dropped the miter saw stand down on its hinges to get the dust out of it... it seems to work as intended as well!
I have been going through all of the boxes and stuff in the shop, and have whittled it down to two piles of 'other' boxes (ones which crept into the shop during the post move sorting frenzy):
in that stack, the offending boxes are stacked on or near my workmate box, the workmate of course will stay, the boxes will be relocated by Tuesday.

and the clean corner:
the wheelchair goes too, as soon as I can figure out where to put it without raising the ire of the LOML.
