I live in Florida, so a lot of my tinkering and building takes place outside. Somehow I can't seem to organize things in a neat manner, but I seem to remember where every thing is..... most of the time.

Step 1: Working Outside
Working outside, isn't too bad if you have something to shade you from the heat of the Florida sun. I do a lot of my projects on the wooden bench in the shade from the cabana.
Step 2: Try to Save Where You Can!
By my nature, I hate to throw away anything that could be used later. It has been suggested by some of my family that I may have hoarding tendencies. This woodshed for example: I have less than $100 cash into building this. Most of the materials were recycled from buildings being torn down, or from free cycle. Ladders and I don't get along very well, so I've bartered with one of the neighbors to do the roof work.
Step 3: Ladders Are Not My Friend
While we were trimming a limb off an old oak tree, the wind shifted and despite safety precautions, the limb hit the ladder on the way down. We were very lucky, no broken bones.
My computer lab corner. I know, it's a mess-- but somehow I still manage to fix things!
This has been my first instructable, and the first time I've shown my messy workshop. If you've enjoyed, please vote for me-- I've put this together for the /Share Your Space' contest. Thanks for reading!
