Man do I feel your pain! I’m going through that right now. I just had to laugh when I read your post. It felt good to laugh, thank you.

I hear you there. My Shop is so dirty and messy and clutered that I can’t hardly do shit in it. All that Sawdust laying on the floors it looks like Aunt Hills.

No room to move around and clean it up right now it sucks lol, I guess one thing it keeps the moister outta the air and in the dust lol

My shop is so messy….. I have a half hour cleanup to get to the shop vac. ..... I’ve learned that the right amount of sawdust actually equals an anti fatigue mat. ..... My last polyurethane job looks more like a chia pet.

Is that what you were looking for, Cosmo?

My shop is so messy I accidentally vacuumed up the shop cat thinking it was a pile of sawdust!

My shop is so messy that my wife just called out to me (from a safe distance) about this and is typing my reply.

My shop is so messy…...no wait! I don’t have a shop.
My garden is so messy…...but it’s nothing that the leaf blower won’t sort out.

Glad I’m not the only one. Seems when I’m done with a project its looks like a tornado hit. I tried cleaning as I go but never seems to work. LOL I’m plumbing a central dust collection in now too try and help. But havent figured out how to keep the tools from piling up LOL Seems the only time its really clean is when were having a party being I know people always want to peak in.

There’s not as much headroom as there used to be. The ceiling is in the same place, the floor (or at least what I’m treading on) is closer.
