a drafting table resides in my kitchen; where, in a normal house, you would find a kitchen table and chairs in this corner:

out in the shop we find a terrible mess. the task of cleaning it up is just too daunting to even consider.

farther around to the right is the "boat" end of the shop. it's just as bad.

I don't have much of a shop right now, but my bench can compete in this contest. The only clean space is the dog kennel underneath. She's a 12 pound pomeranian so she fits OK when see can't go out with us.

I think Daren must have another vise attached to something in the boat section that he can get to. :lol:

Or maybe the Deacon can levitate above the goodies infront of the bench. Kinda like walking on water :mrgreen:

I'll take a photo of mine, but I think Daren is leading the way. ;)

i got a lot of vises of all kinds. there's a drillpress vise on my drillpress. a little three incher that clamps to the edge of a table. two wooded vises on my kitchen 'island' workbench. as well as a four inch milling vise in the house.
there's a fridge in the kitchen, and a small fridge in the shop, for other vises. ;)
lets not forget "visegrips". dozens of 'em.

be careful with those "other vises" or you may come face to face with SurreyVice :o
