Well here are some pics of the most unorganized shop in the LJ community but for me it is just a hobby so i don’t stress it too much. Looking at the pics i need to make a million small boxes to use all the scraps i can’t part with.

It is a nice large space about 25’ X40’ but there is a lot of stored junk in here as well. Maybe this will be the summer i get it organizes. I can only hope!!!

Start by picking something up that’s in the wrong place. Put it in a place temporarily while you move something else to put it where you want it! Put the other piece somewhere temporarily while you find another place where you want it. Before you know it, its time to go to bed! Get up in the morning and start over again. Simple! That’s what I do!

Or I could offer to lend you my wife. She is borderline OCD when it comes to things being neat and organized. I could guarantee you that your shop would be spic and span by the time she was through with it but the biggest downside is that you would not be able to find anything. She has this habit of simply putting hand tools and other small items out of sight in a drawer. It then becomes a “treasure hunt” trying to find them. And her idea of organization for mobile tools is to stack them along 1 wall where you have to move several to get to the one you need.

Good luck on the shop organization.

i have gotten the shop a little more organized.Some small moves re-arranging the table saws and outfeed/assembly table but nothing picture worthy.I started the “mom’s kitchen cabinet project” hopefully to be finished by December and will have more time to organize and re-arrange, and then organize some more, after that i have some rotten floor joist restoration to do on the shop space. Wow i have to stop writing all these things down so i don’t get overwhelmed!!!
