When I am “in” to a project I do not stop and clean or organize. When the project is done, my shop is a mess. Then I have to spend quite a bit of time cleaning and organizing again.

I’ve also worked with a friend in his shop and he cleans up everything at the end of every day.

My theory – - Why clean up that sawdust on the floor today if I am just going to add more tomorrow? I can clean up 2 day’s worth of sawdust almost as fast as I clean up one day’s. The problem is that I use this logic for too many days in a row.

When I am into turning, the pile of chips and shavings under my lathe can get pretty deep (12”).
