Before the flamers begin I will make this blanket statement
I too have a room (and an attic space) in my shop that is a junky catchall for everything.
Many of us here have nice shops. Some have lots of room, Others creatively manage less. Some have lots of tools, some not. We all do the best we can.
So, I was wondering. I’ve noticed that some people, in thier posting of pictures of their shops will include one picture of the ‘disaster room’. That room, like mine that is a catchall for everything. Sometimes you see three pictures of a state of the art, clean shop. Then the last picture looks like the place is piled up to the ceiling with all manner of junk. Not wood/tool storage mind you, but bicycles loaded atop lawn mowers underneath a 47 chevy rear axle often with tons of paint cans and boxes. That type of storage. I have this too but don’t post it and I really don’t care if anyone does. It just doesn’t matter. Some people even show pictures of their shop but you can’t see it for all the other stuff. “My table saw is in there,... really”. But my question if you do put up a disaster room picture:
What is your motivation to include the ‘disaster room’?
I’ve been wondering for a awhile.
