Please be advised, in the interest of organization and sanity and to add my own bit of honey to the Hive, I have VOLUNTEERED to take responsibility for a section of the Hive. I will arrange (and even do a bit more thorough cleaning) this space and tend to it as need warrants. I hope you’ll all show your appreciation for organizational efforts by helping to keep the space clean and free of detritis, obstacles, rubble, and general stuff that doesn’t belong.
I only get a couple of hours a week in the Hive so it isn’t likely to happen quickly but over the next month you should see a transformation.
Of immediate interest to me is the “Laser/Print South Wall” (the same wall as the exit from the Hive) in the 3D-printing/laser cutter/printer room. From the sliding glass door over to the wall - which currently includes a sewing machine and table, a folding table, a rolling shelf-rack, and the laser cutter. The objective here is to reclaim volume so that the table can actually be used for a project and as a temporary resting place while working with the 3D-printers or other projects in that room.
There is a large shelving unit that will get placed along that wall in place of the rolling rack and table to house the printers, material, samples, scraps, etc. for the 3D-printers and the laser cutter. I’ll organize the materials from the stand and the table more vertically to make better use of the space. Maybe even apply a few labels so it is obvious what goes where…
Not to worry - items will be treated lovingly and gingerly placed in their new resting place so that they can be used in-situ. There is likely, however, to be a pile of “questionable” things that might do with a bit of review by their respective owners (you know who you are).
A place for everything and everything in its place. Bzzzz…
