Buried alive

Publish date:

We all know about spring cleaning, the once-a-year, take-everything-out cleaning binge that is usually accompanied by a dozen other tasks that have been put off for one reason or another.

But this year I’m thinking that I cannot wait for spring. Having been involved with some projects that allowed no time to even stop and put things away, my work space has become downright dangerous. There are cords strung everywhere, tangled up with pieces of wood, clamp bars, etc. It seems like just about everything in my shop is on the floor or the benches.

This is going to be a major undertaking. Probably only slightly less in scope that cleaning up the environment.

I can’t believe I let it get this bad.
