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).

“Organization is for people that are too lazy to look for things”.
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.
