Hello everyone.
July is the first anniversary of moving to this town and having once again a little workshop.
A couple of weeks ago I blogged about going to Auction Sale and buying hardwood.
To pick it up I had to clean out a 16×7 cargo trailer that I use for hauling my tools around. That meant I had to use an area 7×16 of my tiny workshop to store these tools. Now if you see my profile my shop is only 12×20 (Single car shed).I already have stationary tools in there before I PACKED my portable tools ON TOP.Anyone that is organized knows this DOES NOT WORK. Move a tool off to use another tool.(Driving me nuts) Well I finally got the metal for my roof on the wood storage lean that I am building. Friday I put it on. Saturaday I carried ALL the wood out of my work trailer and put it inside.Took my portable tools and put most back into the trailer. Today I spent ALL DAY CLEANING my tiny shop. I DO HAVE A FLOOR !
I guess sometimes we make do with what we have !
(The insipration to clean the shop came from looking at all the pics on LJ of people who have nice, clean, organized work spaces)
“If I don’t count ALL THE MAN hiurs I put in ,the hardwood lumber was a GOOD DEAL”
DID I MENTION I LOVE AUCTION SALES (No price can be put on “Auction Therapy “)

Sounds like a lot of work but organization is worth it.
