There was a programmer that designed his kitchen using logic. Everything got a value and dependencies. Guess what the most important item was in the kitchen?
The trash can.
If you are cleaning out the frig, the waste goes in the trash can. If you are prepping dinner, the waste goes in the trash can. Clean up after dinner, the waste goes in the trash can. It was a fascinating article.
He made the center of his kitchen an easy access trash can and everything else was concentric around it.
I searched for the article. I got kitchen CAD software and programming design principles. I need to remember the programmers name.
Perhaps, a similar exercise would be beneficial for arranging the machines in the Woodshop.
