I see what you mean. Some of us a just a bit anal. We like to start a project with a clean slate. But don’t be fooled. Pictures don’t show the fine dust all over everything.

That’s a job for spring cleaning ;-)

I got really fed up with working in a dirty shop when I had a smaller and cluttered garage shop. When I built my new workshop just over two years ago I made a promise to myself to get into the ”habit” of spending 15 minutes or so every night cleaning up and putting everything back in its place before I locked up. Sometimes I really do not feel like cleaning up…but I do it anyway. Anything you do enough repeatedly becones second nature…including cleaning up. Now, I would feel guilty if I locked up a dirty shop.

Have your say...
