√ Hand held video camera
√ Is shop not clean?
√ Do I have upcoming projects?
Several readers asked for a video tour of the shop. But they insisted I also show the route I normally take from the house to the shop, including some of the garden (weeds!) along the way. I promised I would do it.
The situation room
This definitely was the time to share with everyone the total disarray in the shop.
Many will wonder, “…Why? Why not clean up things, then show off a clean shop…?” To which my reply this time is: “Because I suspect most shops look like this right now.”
You be the judge
Am I even close? Does YOUR shop look anywhere close to this? What would you change to improve the mess? I know — this mess is an accident waiting to happen. My position is simple: I will NOT start a new project until the mess is cleaned up and the tools are back where they belong. It is the same thing I always suggest to fellow woodworkers. Why? A misplaced power cord on the floor can trip you up, and you could trip on a short cut that you did not throw away or saved in a designated spot.
