it always seems like whenever I add more organizers the place gets MORE messy. it always seems like I am doing more work maintaining or bandaid-ing my machines than using them and the shop is usually in a constant state of clutter and half finished projects.
Before my job ended i wound up with the desk I used in the maintenance bay. It is an old machinist’s desk from boeing (how it wound up in a former lumber yard turned garden center is anyone’s guess.) So this meant removing my old workbench which was no easy task since i built it to last forever.
here is my shop after i put in my desk and rearranged my machines. the pic is a bit blurry because it was raining that day and i had to take the photo outside my shed so you can see everything
Now with the old bench removed I made an interesting discovery. the building is sagging! apparently my shed doesnt have enough supports and as a result 2 of the walls are warped and started leaking. Guess what i get to do this summer
But i digress after much effort (and a lot of 4-letter words) I managed to put that behemoth desk into my shop and hopefully someday i will get it cleaned and organized again….. maybe
