« Part 1: A New Shop Cabinet Part 2 of A Clean Shop series no next part

With the new equipment cabinet completed, I could go to work on getting the rest of the shop cleaned and organized. I moved a bunch of stuff to the shed or outside on the side of the house. I then proceeded to sweep, vacuum and dust. Since I don’t have an air filtration system in the shop I routinely open up the garage doors and blow out the dust with the air compressor (a trick I saw at the Wood Whisperer).

A (Reasonably) Clean Shop

A Clean Shop

Next up on the list is to make another cabinet for under the workbench. I still have a bunch of small tools that I would like to organize and this cabinet should let get this done.

I can’t tell you what a difference a clean shop makes to my mindset when I go out there. With a few more tweaks I am hopeful I will be able to keep it this way.

Happy Veteran’s Day!
