Default Welcome to my madness (shop)

This mess is my shop. All 120 square foot ( it is also our storage). I believe there is a place for everything and everything in its place. I had to except the fact that as this project grows, I lose access to my tool and wood storage. There fore the tools and the mess stay on the floor. On good days, I move the operation outdoors and the shop gets a well deserved cleaning. Not many good days during a southern summer. My current project is almost complete and I think the high 90's are about gone for now. Some day I might actually have a shop I can move in.

You are right, Warren.

A shed/shop has to look lived in....

Hi Warren, the first pic looked great I'd love to have a shed like that but when i looked inside , Man !!! definately a bit of Housecleaning and making some shelving and racks wouldn't go astray. I see you have an attic above workshop........is that full of stuff too??

sorry if i sound like a pillock , just envious of a shed/shop going to waste

My shop is a little larger, 600 sq feet, but gets conjested also when I get several projects going at one time. One thing always priority on my mind is shop safety. A cluttered shop can be a dangerous shop, with tripping hazards, falling, blocking material travel such as saws, planers, etc. planning out your project will help.

This is the inside of my shop, as of today. All 96 square feet of it.
Forgot to take a picture of the outside, maybe I have one stuck somewhere. Ah, yes, found one. That's the iggle on my world corporate headquarters. Made that thing in probably 1996/7, painted with exterior latex paint, which has held up very well.

Don't know what a pillock is yet alone what one sounds like, so your good. Yes the loft is full, but the shop is not going to waste. The clutter doesn't slow me down. I move everything outside when ever I can so I can enjoy the weather and clean the shop. I have plans for shelves next to the door and across from the door. Couple more years and I plan on building a 20' x 30' shop out back. Until then, I should finish my current project next week.

G'day Warren, was just concerned about safety aspects mate , come to think of it i've never heard or seen a pillock either lol , just a saying i picked up along the way
I was just meaning being Narky sorry
When i can figure out how to put pic's of my own shop/shed /small garage you'll see why i was envious'
I'm just start out with this woodworking adventure, and i've been off fulltime work lately{ 1 year } with a crook lower back so things have been going real slow out in the Man Cave
