Always nice after a cleanup…the calm before the storm of more sawdust and cutoffs.

I dont bother to “clean”. I OCCASIONALLY vacuum, and usually just REARRANGE the clutter!

I guess that you cleaned up the shop for a dinner party tonight on that new magnificent maple top table !

You must feel good after those three hours well spent. Now, how about a paint job on the concrete floor, what I’ve been doing for the last five six in my basement shop ?

Please, don’t keep it clean for a very long time and share more of your great projects ! ;-)

reposition all tools used.

Blow off everything. Leave awhile and let it settle

Vacuum and sweep.

Much too clean. I never trust a woodworker that has a clean shop, he must be hiding something! Now make it messy.

Oh now I know, you just moved into that new shop didn’t you…now go to work and make a mess…I sure do.

I think my wife was giving me a hint the other day…she said I could put all the saw dust from the floor in her garden….hint, hint
