You guys just threw a wet blanket on my new shop in half of my basement. Just kidding. They're all nice.

The pictures are really helpful and suggest lots of additional solutions.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Good question Brian: "Can you find things..." I've worked hard for my client 250km from home almost every weekend (5 days>60h) over a month in august and after the last time I came home Ive been so fedup with her (client) that I havent had the energy or the mood to get it back organized how it was before I started to drive back and forth. I only have the main table fixed where I restore the window frames. But to your question do I find things-yes I do but the litter on the floor and 70% beeing upsidedown IS getting on my nerv ?. Besides the winter is coming and I must empty my car from tools and get them allso back in the shop...

Thanks TwoSkies for your kind words!!
Im not good in advertaising or to sell my self but Im good with what Im doing with my hands and I love my work. I've allways tryed to make the best of it I what I have and now Ive got to admit that I feel my self lucky to have such a nice shop and customers. Now Im in a situation that sometimes I think that it would be nice to have time to make some own stuff.
Ive got so good answers from you how to fix my shop to get it even better that I think I will print it and hang it on the wall?

It probably won't take that long to get it all done. Shelving and the plastic tubs were each done in a week or two. Just clear out the space first and put them up. The wire shelving just needs to have 2 or 3 virtical pieces screwed deep into the studs and the shelves go righ up. You can adjust their height as needed. The cabinets for tools are pretty easy to make. the doors on mine are really just ply with a decorative trim on them that looks like a panel door, but really is not. You can add drawers later if you want.

Open shelves work OK but as Stick's pictures show, many tools are happier and easuer to find in drawers.

Just start with one area, then another, then another and soon you'll be organized. You will like working in your shop much more each time you finish a section.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
