I’m sorry, but your shop is just TOO NEAT AND CLEAN!

Nice job on the table though :-)

That’s really nice. I love the design.

I do have to agree with joein10asee… you need to sloppy that shop up some. If you need any tips on how to do that, stop by and see me sometime. :-)

A beautifully done drafting table and a great dust free computer storage at the same time. The coffee cup was nice too.

Your workshop is far too clean- I envy that too :-)

Thanks guy’s my wife got a chuckle out of the clean shop remarks I’m sure like most I clean up after each step or until the clutter gets so bad I have no choice .

If I had room in my shop.I would be stealing your design in a drop of hat ! Actually I have on my drawing board(smaller scale) plans to build a replica antique drafting table similar to yours. With inspiration from Your well done shop version hopefully I will start it sooner rather than later ! Thanks for sharing and the motivation, a very good looking and functional shop piece ! ROB
