The Little Things – Organized Workshop

The Little Things – Organized Workshop

This was a very busy weekend for projects. I was able to finish up a raspberry trellis for our backyard garden. This took most of Saturday morning. After that I spent the rest of the weekend working on the last bit of trim for the workshop. I just finished getting it hung up about 1 hour ago. It still needs to be painted, but it looks great! 

Posts on both of those projects will be coming in the next couple weeks, but I wanted to write a quick post before calling it a weekend. I’ve been trying hard to keep my super small (10’ x 12’) workshop organized. This means that at the end of a project or weekend of work I take enough time to vacuum up all of the sawdust, sweep the floor clean, and put all of my tools and workbenches away where they belong. It can take 30 minutes or so, but future Tyler is always super appreciative of the effort.

So today, I’ll leave you with a picture of the cleaned up shop. It may not be a big deal for most people out there, but it brought me joy this evening. Sometimes you just have to appreciate the little things in life, especially in the midst of a global pandemic and rampant social injustice. For me, today, that means appreciating and celebrating a clean workshop at the end of the weekend.

It’s clean! Still a ways to go to clear out the assembly table benches, but it’s a good start!
