If anyone has looked at my shop pics in the past, they know I like a really clean and organized shop.

For some reason, this pine mini-armoire build has gotten my shop a bit out of sorts LOL!

I like a clean well organized shop too but when your in the groove and things are moving along everything seems to find it’s own place. I just wish it thought it’s place was the same place I think it is. Carry own, you can’t work wood without making a mess. It’s a wood shop not a laboratory, I keep telling myself that.

Very true…I guess I had forgotten how messy pine is when routing.

1st pic – your glue is out with the cap off – absolutely disgraceful. And don’t get me started on your sawdust-covered combination square left under your router table (pic 4).

Maybe your just not as lazy as you were.

Anytime you are in the middle of a project, it’s easy to lose control. Still cleaner than mine.
