It's there, look back a few posts.  The picture *TRULY* doesn't do justice.  Oh god.  It's terrible.  It's over a foot high, maybe two feet.   Sad

A clean workbench/desk is a sign of a sick mind !! ... Tongue  Clean, uncluttered workbenches are only seen in the magazines...which is a dead give away the modeler is not a true builder....Yeah, some guys are pretty good builders and have momentarily a clean workbench..but that's because he's hen-pecked..lol   Cheesy

Hi, I'm Josh (group "Hi Josh) and I am a Mess-a-holic...

Well I haven't posted much of anything in a loooong time, finally got Something done, the little FROG Speedy in front for my 4 year old... Anyways, nothing like shaming yourself to get motivated cleaning off the bench so here goes.

Oh yes, I had already cleaned it up some BEFORE taking this picture so it was actually even worse!

Well,
For what it's worth, a quick shot of my version of the doeble decker work bench.
The nice thing about it is that you can work on another project while the glu dries.
Oh, my wife doesn't know you're not supposed to build models in the house.
Cheers!

I notice in the 3rd pic that the waste paper basket is completely empty but also completely surrounded by 'stuff'. You need to improve your aim Grin.

If you can see the top of your work table and the chair has a clear path to the edge the work bench is clean, besides if I cleaned mine up it would take me way too much time to locate any tool or part while i build. And I like that homey hermit feeling.

I like the 109 next to the "emptied" bin.  McHard plan?   My living room is trying to catch up to my "building cage" (it's become the model storage room) - gotta get some flyable weather so's to lose a couple of planes Roll Eyes.

I am not sure where I fit in on this thread – probably not at all; however I should like to tell you of a little game I play (yes, at my age) which will enable you to say, in a superior way: ‘How sad is that!’.

My workbench does get messy, it seems inevitable with all the little things that are needed to make a model but, the thing is, I hate it.  Also I do not subscribe to the view that a good builder needs to be messy, I think in general the best craftsmen are very methodical and usually have a tidy workplace.

So, to my little game.  When the mess is starting to annoy me I pick up one item, say a screwdriver, walk over to the tool drawer and put it away.  Walk back to the bench thinking about the next item – the sandpaper?- pick it up and take it to the sandpaper tin and so on, one item at a time, until the bench is cleared.  It may not sound like much of a game but like most games it seems difficult when you start but becomes easy with practice.  The rules are very simple: first, you must not stop walking, so you must be thinking of the next object and where it goes all the time and second you must not leave anything on the bench because you might need it in the next few minutes, it must all go away.  It works!

Your abusive comments and raspberries will be treated as friendly badinage.

Hi John,

My problem is I'd forget where I was going, and if I got there, I'd have no idea why I was there with a screw driver in my hand.

I can imagine that some mess in the workshop should be commonplace.
In my case there is a contamination in the living room and kitchen ...

By the way, someone here has been to work on Monday with some DT fuse or a winder in jacket pocket?

Alvaro thats what i call a modeller's house Grin. Love it.
John - your game reminds me of the small workshop of a friend who I help from time to time. He has a large number of benches which were originally dedicated to different processes(he was/is a small electronics RC manufacturer).
Now his tools migrate - they have a life of their own and our version of your game is "what bench is that screwdriver on?" .In the midst of all this i will often leave my glasses somewhere and that causes another hunt!
He has clean ups periodically. The effect doesn't last long though.

I don't know why someone commented on the wast basket being empty, and the floor being littered, that's what floors are for.  His aim is really accurate as he hit the floor every time.  Must have been a marksman in some military somewhere.  Comedienne Joan Rivers once commented that as soon as you get the housework done then six or eight months later you have to do it all over again.  Leave the litter, then the floor stays clean underneath.  Ron  My place is decorated in early Canadian Bachelor (wall to wall litter).

My goodness Guys!  What a clean place you all have.   Grin  My place is so bad now that the critters who used to come in, don't anymore.  Too hazardous.   Shocked  Most of the ants who used to come in from the heat got tired of getting squashed by one thing or another I dropped.  Last ant hill I looked at had explicit instructions about staying away from the crazy woman's house as being hazardous to health.  The lizards stick their tongues out at me when they see me, and the ground squirrels run for cover, fearing debris will rain down upon their heads.  And lastly, attempts to take pictures for posting here have failed due to the camera shutting down, or is that shuddering down.  Oh yes, you Guys are a bad influence.   Grin  Caley

What you haven't trained the critters  to clean up, Caley? Ron - Early Canadian Bachelor - thats a good one. That means my area/workshop/house is early Australian Archeologist dig Grin
There has been a lot of interest in some recently recovered fossilized remains of flying machines from the last century - but they need cabon dating verification.
