Hello guys.

I brought to my shop new machine and deficite of place become more perceptible.

I was thinking about conception of my workspace and understand I was wrong with this table.

I’ve came to idea that it is absolutely useless as worktable. All work anyway occured on central worktable and these tables always turned to tool storage…not so convenient storage. All this could be kept on shelves and wallholders but step by step tools migrate to table and lay there thorougly mixed with dust.

I am thinking about total destroying this one and make some smaller movable work stations.

Sorry for my weak english, I hope you’ll understand what I meant.

Mirock, my friend, no problem with your English. It is a helluva lot better that my Ukrainian or Russian ( I don’t know which you speak). The most important thing is that you keep posting your incredible work. I understand your dilemma with the table. My shop is full of so much stuff I have bought that I cannot even get in it.
Keep working and keep posting.

Have a good’un.

It is some kind of a law:
ALL surfaces will be filled by things uniformly.

Of course it is easier to throw tool on table except finding regular place. After work I do sorting. On table all the same remained unsorted things which hasn’t place. Some of them get space with time but all this because regular places isn’t convenient really.

The question is – how to organize work space to avoid this “horizontal surface syndome”, but not by everyday cleaning and sorting but higher level of organization. To exclude very cause of this.

Thank you rejo, maybe I need some ears to say about) to get question clear

Well, if you ever solve the “horizontal surface syndrome” please, please post in large letters the solution. I shall then try to explain it to my wife.

Perhaps it would make some sense to plan your storage space around the production flow of your work. I assume that these CNCs are used to make your excellent squares. You might be able to identify specific needs at different stages in you production process so that you can achieve an uncluttered work area. Just a thought.

Yes Jim, you are right. Squares occupied first cnc and I needed to buy one more for hobby use. First I thoght to build one more shop behind this but now I see need to organize this first.
Space never be enough. I think I would be able to fill stadium by rubbish)
