By way of introduction, here is a picture of my cluttered shop. I swear I know where everything is. Since this photo was taken, a mini-lathe has been added in, and the tablesaw cover in the foreground is covered over with turning paraphernalia. I’m hoping the new PWW Greene & Greene table contest will remedy that shortcoming! Thank you to your organizers for originating this contest. -BarbS

I wouldn’t say “cluttered” – I’d call it well stocked! It appears to be very organized, from my point of view. It’s quite the shop. Definitely “wonderland”.

Lol – My shop is cluttered. This looks like an operating room.

If it ain’t cluttered, you don’t have enough tools!

Cluttered with good tools. Your shop floor is too clean!

Cluttered? I see too many clear surfaces, and all that walking room. I’d get on-line, as quickly as you can, and see what tools you could buy to protect all that emply space.

I WISH I could see that much floor in my shop area.

Are guys just messier than women woodworkers? You guys talk as if you can’t even move through your shops, and Michael (Obi), where do you assemble anything?? I’m forever lamenting not having room for a proper assembly table. I have to lay a hollow core door across sawhorses and inch my way around the set up.

Drew- Setting up is the fun part! I’ve redone my shop twice now, and it is easy to get carried away with it, and avoid building anything. Your shop will be beautiful, even though all that empty space will fill up quickly. I look forward to more photos of it when it is full.

At last another clean and organised shop. Ignore the comments about dirty floors as dirty floors are dangerous floors.
