This is the updated shop PICS. It shows the 2 cabinets that I recently built. It is a little cleaner than before. By building the 2 cabinets I was able to free up some space on the floor so I can move around without tripping over things. Still have 3 cabinets to build. One thing I have learned about workshops is that they are always a work in progress. The 1st pic is looking in from the door, then looking left for the rest of them.

Better a cluttered shop that gets used than a clean one that is just filled with tools.

Rick,

I agree with Marc about the shop. Yours looks a lot like mine does whenever I am in the middle of a project. This simply drives my wife nuts and often she feels that she has to help me clean up. Of course then I either can’t find or get to my tools since she does not put them back where they belong.

Thanks for posting pictures of your shop. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Great looking shop! I do find the placement of the table saw and the window behind it to be an interesting topic for discussion :)

Keep at it Rick. We all have the same problems, a messy shop while working on a project and the continual reorganizing to meet our current needs. These things point out two interesting facts: (a) we are actually doing projects and (b) we are progressing to other types of work. Maybe we can call these leading indicators of productivity and skill level.

Yes the cabinets do help, Rick. The shop is really taking shape. Anytime you can find space to store your tools, it can really help avoid tripping over things. Looking good!

Semper Fi Rick, your shop reminds me of mine, I have the same problem with a lack counter/ workbench space as well as cabinet space. At least we get to make some saw dust.
