Impressive to be sure! I do have to admit that people that well organized are annoying though!!

From my experience, the creative process is necessily messy. Personally, I need quick access to my favorite tools, and having them so neatly organized as this toolchest allows would only slow me down. Much of the time my bench is fairly cluttered with tools and multiple projects in various forms of completion. I clean up only when I have to!

No kidding! Especially when they visit my shop and stare disapprovingly, their mouths agape.

Haha!! ain't gonna happen!! I don't do "structured creativity"!

Last time I "had to" was 2003 when we moved. I don't have any foreseeable "have to" moments in my future.

Good to know I'm not the only one here that subscribes to the policy of "a pile for everything and everything in it's pile"!! :-)

....I've even found piles with built-in redundancy items for contingency planning purposes....

A neat, clean, orderly workspace is a certain indication the either someone needs much more (motivation) to do something, the tools and such are only for show, or there are perhaps some issues left over from childhood......
Or perhaps empty desk == empty mind ?
Photo please ala the messiest desk photos of various engineers I found a while back......

Well, if you insist. My main dev workstation:

That's just the tip of the iceberg. Do I win anything?

Mr. Congeniality? :)

Looks like quite a productive workspace IMHO.
