    It’s Horizontal Surface Deficiency, it comes from needing a bigger shop. 98 percent of machinists and wood workers suffer from it, the number is higher if you do both.

      I have spent years fighting HSD. I finally came to the conclusion that there is no cure. Never enough hours in the day and every time I get started, my wife needs something. Conclusion: Shops should not be at home.

        Horizontal Surface Deficiency- got an extra 20 sq ft last week by going multi-level. Those drawers are working out great- I was able to put enough stuff away (including the 1115 pc drill bit set) that I can almost see another bench top. I used EMLS* in another room, and that worked out too. I need to become more familiar with TTFCO*. Used together, I think I'll be able to get a glimpse of the saw table again.

        *extended multi-level storage
        *throw that freakin crap out


        I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

            I suffer from CDO. It's like OCD, but with the letters in the right order as they should be.

                HSD can be treated with a fresh inoculation of shelves and work benches, but like other issues can only truly be managed by hard work and determination. Its 100% incurable.

                  HSD = Exacerbated highly infectious affliction related to planar objects orient in a perpendicular fashion relative to local gravity noted by growing piles of irregular (and sometimes regular) shaped objects rendering the planar objects ineffective at their intended purpose.

                    An acronym consists of parts of words, such as DefCon or TelSat. OCD and BFF and NASA are alphabetizations. If I had OCD that would be a BFD...

                        Lock the door to the shop. Disable the garage door opener.

                          Are you (your shop) setup for LOM?

                            I used to suffer from HSD (high speed driving) but I don't suffer from it anymore. I enjoy every minute of it.

                              An acronym is a pronounceable, word-like abreviation. e.g. NASA, ASCII, NATO.

                                I ask people if they have a TLA for that. Its the 3 letter acronym for Three Letter Acronym.
