I hear ya on moving stuff around and making room to fit new stuff and such. Been busy on a twin table saw cabinet build for the last 7 weeks. When laying out the drawers I wrote on every single page, tools ONLY! The idea being to move as many tools into the drawers as possible freeing up enough space to make two cabinets on casters where on 9 footer is bolted to the wall.

While I keep my drawers well organized and am good about putting tools back. A horizontal surface is a prime candidate to put anything not a tool. Wood, somewhat finished projects, abandoned projects, spare hardware, small boxes of odds and ends etc etc.

But hey, I always have something to do in the shop, and that is a good thing!
