So…yeah I need it to not be so hot out, so I can organize this mess.

Oh and my precious’s have arrived to add even more clutter into my already super cluttered garage, 24×32 sure fills up fast.

There’s a floor down there somewhere but I’ll be damned if I can find it, this little gremlin eats up all my time at the moment…photo op for the kid, and in case you were wondering he likes cake :)

It’s a organized mess with some very good components. Very cute little guy.

Gee, those “Grizzly” boxes look heavy and in the way. Let me take them off your hands and surely THAT will help you clean your shop up a bit… ;-)

Lol “organized mess” I’ll tell that to the wife next time, thanks Jim he is cute but lookout for the pokes in the eyes and flying cars at your face for a 1yr old he throw pretty hard right at the proper spots.

Mike, you keep dreaming sir, that took 6 months to convince my wife to let me get all that next year I’ll be getting the same table saw as you and the router extension (any tips as to what to buy along with it are welcome) and also heat for the garage after I get all the insulation up this year.

Who doesn’t like cake! Looks like you’ve got a predicament a lot of LJ’s would give their eyeteeth for LOL!

Is this a game? Try and locate what doesn’t belong? hahaha

I can see one thing right off the bat that would go if it were my shop, all items not related to woodworking are out in the street, hence bicycles :)

Hey – I recently added heat to my shed. I live in the country and went with a Modine LP product called the Hot Dawg heater. Works fine and well made – don’t you just love new toys?

You just have to adjust your schedule a little, the temperature is great about midnight. One look at your
little bundle of fun reminded me why my son has a walk in shower, just carry kid, chair and all in and clean up
is easy. You now know why they recommend soft toys for small children, it is for the parents, not the kids.
Thank you for sharing.
