No matter how many times I clean it up, all I have to do is hang a picture & this is the way I leave it! :oops: :oops: :lol:

looks like it's time for a garage sale. get rid of some stuff so you can work and move around. when i had my shop in the basement , everything had a place to be. now after 4 years the place is a disaster , can't find anything. good thing i've only been down there couple times. make me want to :blowup: seeing how people treat my tools when there done. just throw it anywhere. :shock:

Devil,

I see the problem in the first pic.

If you would just put those 2 jugs of Atomic Fireballs on a shelf and hang that roll of shipping tape, you would have a 12" x 12" area on the workbench. That's all the room you need. Everything else can stay as it is. :funny: :funny:


Didn't George Carlin have some material about having too much "stuff?"


And no I will not post a picture showing my shop or desk !!!

I hear y'all loud and clear! 10 years ago I moved and left behind a bank barn I built and had to toss and consolidate 1400 ft. of goodies. That's sq. ft - I won't let on to the volume :oops: I had it under control after the move until the kids started yo-yoing in and out of the house with their stuff. Like ken said, everything had a be in its place and now I'm glad if it has a place to be in more than on time. At lease I can get to the old Massey and Gravely stuff. Life is good :)

Every few months I get tired of having no space & clean the whole place out......Then.....Like I said.....it seems that all I have to do is hang a picture & it looks like that again! When (*& if :) ) i ever clean it out again, I'll post pics of that too.
Let's see your shops.

My wife and I have lived in an old grist mill for almost forty years. It has four floors 40 x 50 each. On the 9 acres outside there are 3 sheds. If I need to find a tool, the search pattern could be about a mile and a half walk, with 26 steps and an elevator ride to the attic. You'd think I'd get organized and start to stick stuff in glass jars. Maybe set up a database with GPS maps and such. Not a chance! Clutter is the sign of a great thinker. And besides, if I can't find the tool I'm looking for, I can always go to ACE Hardware and get another, then I'll have three.

I'll quote what my first boss told me... "if you're shop is perfectly clean and organized that means you aren't making any money..."

The solution to that problem is of course to build another garage. :D

Well here is where the coal refurb activity is moving, as soon as I get a chance to finish it of course. :lol: I also have a spot for MC work that will free up some garage space... so perhaps by winter I will be showing a picture that looks more like the one below.

Thanks Devil
I dont feel so alone now :)
If a shop looks like nobody works in it...its probably so!!!
Mine really has that "worked in look".... :roll:
And I would never dare post a pic of it...Now if i could get the little women to help straighten up just a bit....
