This is seldom seen...

I am not an untidy person.
Every time a piece is finished, I put all my tools back in place. Never the less, in a normal situation my workbench is far from how it looks here in the picture !
Every once in a while I feel the need to really clean up the workshop, and the toughest piece is always the bench. As you see it here, it is crubed and polished. Not a trace of metal remaining on the surface.
And that is not all. I cleaned up the computer area, the hammering bench and the drilling table. The floor, the shelves, the lot.
It is funny, but every time I do that, I can't wait to get to work again and... sure thing messing it all up.


  1. I can totally relate to this post. I like to sew rather than work in metal, but I go through the same process in my workroom. I always feel great when I take the time to straighten up my space, but that great feeling usually leads to a bout of work that messes everything up again.

  2. It is good to see where the magic is made.
