Which all adds up to a lot of dust.
Which is why I've decided to kick off the year with a new resolution to 1) clean up all that dust and 2) to make a whole lot less of it in the future.
The first job is simple, it just requires a lot of work, which I kicked off today with some help from Helena.
I broke down the rickety plywood 'workbench' that I've been using for a couple years, and cleared away all the junk that was leaning against my shop's outside wall.
What all that work revealed wasn't pretty: a combination of peeling paint, dust, and mold. But all that needs is a bit of bleach and elbow grease, and paint to clean up.
Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to go round all 4 walls, cleaning and painting everything that won't move, and sorting through everything that will move, to separate the junk and clutter from the useful.
Junk and clutter are heading out the door.

So, what's your boatbuilding/woodworking resolution this year?
