Default From messy to neat..

Well, hadn't cleaned the shop in about 3 projects ago. And so I had a few dozen tools out and a pound of saw dust EVERYWHERE'S! (pics don't do it justice, of the mess it was.) Today was clean up day. And it took me the whole day. Well, not just cleaning but also changing the oil in the air compressor, and giving the shop-vac a good cleaning and new filter. Also cleaned and waxed my router table, scroll saw table and table saw table. Also cleaned window unit A.C. and filter!!

1st pic was of first project, (of the three projects done without straightening up). A sign for the office of where I work. 2nd pic is some feet I replicated for my Nieces night stand she is refinishing. The old ones (sample is far left, in pic 2) were cracking. Then the third pic is of a some little frames that I am refinishing (also to hold pics of Grandchildren.) Pics 4 and 5 is the mess I was left with after finishing these latest projects. Saw dust and tools every where's!! And lastly, pics 6 and 7 are of the clean and neat shop! Just waiting for the next project!!

Thank y'all! But Dan, like I said, the pics don't do the messy shop justice. There was a layer of saw dust on everything. My vac was almost empty when I started. When I finished, it was topped off. And I swear, half my tools were out! LOL

You have a very well equipped shop, looks well thought out and sees a lot of use. Always feels good to walk into a clean shop. Thanks for sharing.
