I Cleaned the shop out for the first time is over a year because of going up north to see my dad as often as I was able before he passed on. Looking at the first photo is a shot looking into the shop from the outside the second one is from the opposite direction. The third one is the west wall and the next one is my exotic stock in a rack above the back door, the fifth photo is the wall where I store my planner and joiner. I took the in feed and out feed tables off so I could get it closer to the east wall, that plus moving the band saw to the back of the shop gave me the most open floor space. The last photo is looking at the north west corner where I built a work bench against the wall but it had been buried for two years and unusable. Now I don’t mind going out to the shop and cant wait to get building again. I still have to move things around but I don’t mind that at all.
Thanks for looking

I second WWWW’s comment. Looks fantastic, and I am very sorry to hear about your father.

Nice looking shop. Nothing wrong with a neat, organized shop. It is safer and a pleasure to work in. I clean my shop after every project. Sorry about the loss of your dad. I spent 6 months every other weekend going from Iowa to southern Indiana till she passed. I know what your were going through.

God Bless

Thanks Jocks I did find some stuff I forgot I had like a new tape I got for the table saw from Get Neds web site but mostly it was things like chisels at different locations and under other stuff, Bit drivers everywhere but in the draw where I keep them, and just everything not where I could find it because I moved it to get to something else. Just how long it stays this way is up too me I guess “putting away things is not my strong point.
The wife asked me what I sold because the shop looks empty you can see the photos of the shop before I cleaned it in my shop profile but it was way worse than that… Trust me.
Thanks for the condolences I am thinking of starting a charity drive here in my area where all proceeds go to the Parkinson foundation I thought maybe it would please my Dad if he were still here and it would help a good cause.

Thanks Jim, all I need to do is be home to work in it. I have been on the road for 2 weeks again. I hope to get back by May 29th. We stopped in Savannah, Ga. on our home from my daughters wedding. What a great place.

falegniam, The juicer is for making water Mellon/cream shooters, we put them in tiny cups and freeze them for special events at the house. LOL You asked.
