Workshop Information

Country
United States
My workshop has been salvaged from an old kennel in the hills around Woodland, WA (it took a while before it smelled like a woodshop). It is small (20×22') but I managed to cram everything I need in there somehow. I especially like that the shop located on a very lisolated piece of property. As you can see in the pictures I am not exactly a neat freak and would welcome any suggestions on how to learn to keep a cleaner shop.

Looks cozy! You can't ask me about keeping things clean.

Hi Gary,

If you have more pictures of your shop I would like to see them. But as for keeping it clean I really could not be any help other than to offer to let my wife tour it. Every so often she goes through my shop and rearranges it to suit her sense of order. Sweeping (with a lot of complaining about how I let the sawdust accumulate behind things) and stacking all the mobile tools in neat rows along the shop walls. It is neat and well organized but the only trouble is that I can't get to anything without doing a lot of moving.

Thanks for the post.

Like your shop Gary. Is that a home made lathe in front of you?

Thank you HallTree, I'm surprised that you could see it will enough to tell it IS homemade. For all the trouble and trips to Home Depot that it took to build, might not have been worth it, but I like it.

I'd offer tips about keeping the shop clean, but in all honesty, I have no clue…
