Wow Wayne, that shop is huge compared to mine!! :shock:
I wish I had so much floor space, that is awesome! ::ds::
I also love your metal cabinets with the metal drawers, those are so handy! I just picked up a smaller one with 9 drawers that now sets at the back of me main work bench. I constructed my bench deeper than is really useable so I could put some storage behind it, that way I don't have to move around as much.
Great shop and nice use of the space ! ::tu:: ::tu::


Mike, a shop that is used is just controlled chaos! If you get organized from time to time It makes it easier to re-order the chaos when you finish some projects. I don't clean after every project but I do try to straighten things up at least weekly. When I start losing valuable time and energy looking for things in the chsos, I know it is time to clean. ::nod::

Well..... that's a good philosophy. Too many times I walk away after the day is done.
I usually clean up during projects....... When the chaos is piled too high in my work area.....LOL.
