Are you kidding?

When I'm involved in a project I try to put my tools away, but generally speaking, you could call me "the Bomb". LOL

Clean and Organized shop?

I also have several projects in various stages of their perspective builds. Some may think it is in minor disarray yet I have had people think the shop looks good. Whatever, I will sometimes stand off to the side of my little shop and think how cool it is and how lucky I am to have a place where I can get lost while making things.

I'm with you--I just built my shed and was limited to 10X 10, and am still bring stuff in from storage to try and arrange--moving everything at least once or twice a month. I have had several plans and layouts, but it changes with every truckload of tools and gadgets.

After having built up my own stock of stuff, I inherited my dad's garage, which immediately duplicated a hundred little things, and I had to replace a few of the bigger tools that had gone missing, but I swear that by the end of this summer I ill have everything in it's proper place. It drives me, a retired chef, crazy not to be able to practice my lifelong technique of "Mis en Place" (Put in Place). If you clean up as you go when the day is done, you sweep the floor and go home.

I can't wait!

My garage/shop is very organized but it is dusty. I use my air compressor for occasional dusting. I always sweep the floor after working in my shop because I move the car back in. It is a two car garage with room for one car.

I know how to make sawdust.
