After embarking on a few days of cleanup and a few projects that encouraged cleanliness I now have a very clean shop. Next week I will return it to it’s natural state.

I can’t comment as my workshop/garage is in the process of redesign. Your workshop looks like a shrine in comparison. :)

Your shop looks very nice. However, it’s always nice to have a clean one every now and then.

Looks great, I just had to clutter my shop. Since winter is coming my wife thinks she needs her bay back to park her car.
