I’ve mentioned to a few before, that putting things in their proper place in the Dungeon workshop is much like playing with one of those sliding puzzles, or more like a Rubik cube. It came down to this: I needed more lumber racks and I needed to sort out the questionable-to-down-right-bad-boards and get them out of the shop.

My first task was to build a rack for sheet goods. The only place with enough space is the entryway into the dungeon. It’s full now with most all of the sheet goods I have. I’ll take it.

Next was a rack for short boards. These would be pallet slats, cut-offs, and whatever else is short and in quantity.

Finally, I pulled everything out of the the long board rack, sorted out anything questionable or bad, then replaced with all the that was on the floor and leftover from the sorting process. I was able to get everything off the floor!

Way to go, Paul !
As I’ve always said “A clean shop is a happy shop!”
Accomplishment of this is an entirely different story altogether, but it look like you are off to a great start on it.
Yours is definitely evolving into a very nice work space.

Thanks, Ed. Appreciated.

I must be bipolar, because I require and work best in a neat, clean environment, but for some reason my life is always one big mess. Go figure! :)
