Even in this organized woodshop things can get misplaced.

Even my well-organized woodshop can use an improvement or two.

One of the great joys of woodworking is helping other woodworkers realize their fullest potential. With limited technical and artistic skills there is little I can do to help other woodworkers perfect their joinery, inlay, carving or turning techniques. However, as a fairly well organized guy, I do enjoy helping fellow woodworkers organize their workshops, gain more productive time by working more efficiently, and by passing on tips and techniques that can make some tasks go more quickly.

It is a rarity to walk into another person’s woodshop and not see opportunities to help improve the utilization of space, cut down on wasted motion, and organize for better outcomes in less time. So for a woodworker who takes great pride in being efficient, it was quite the comeuppance to realize that it was time for the physician to heal himself. You see, I discovered a problem, and it needs to be fixed.

A week or so ago a fellow woodworker sent an email after watching a couple of my videos.
