Fun Thread.... POST YOUR DESK / WORKSPACE

Post by CascadeChris » Sat Jan 04, 2020 6:34 pm

Thought this would be a fun little insight thread for us. Here's mine, right before the cleaning / safeing today in preparation for the upcoming FUN trip only a few short days away!..

Whether you have a "Messy Desk" or a spit-polished copystand, let's see em guys!

This thread, while fun, can also be an insightful one to share tips or tricks, photography hints etc :mrgreen:

My desk is usually a mess but I did some New Year cleaning days ago. I built my desk years ago made out of solid red oak. It will be here long after I'm not.

Just about everything is only an arm's length away. But for the reference books (bookshelf is behind me) I have to get out of the chair:

Great subject!

Here are recent photos of my old office (upper photo) and my new one in the building on K Street, NW.

In the old office photo, the fellow at the desk is Elbert Quigley. He’s the person responsible for adding those little tracking numbers to documents from the archives. The men to his left are the late Chapman brothers twins – Wilber and Norman. (No relation to S. & H. Chapman Bros. or S&H Green Stamps.) They were hard workers and spent most of their time digging for old documents in the deep archives. Unfortunately, one afternoon while they were eating their dinner from metal pails, there was a cave-in and they were buried under tons of letters, journals and other ancient material. A recovery crew never found Wilber. Norman’s body was discovered with an Italian meatball stuffed in his mouth. The coroner ruled he died of asphyxiation by garlic.

The new office is nicer with better lighting. My desk is on the right with the 200-inch UHD display next to it. I’ve gotten Elbert a new suit of clothes, and he promises to wear them every day. There is a casual conversation area on the left, and at distant center is a more formal meeting table. My assistant’s desk is on the left, just out of the photo.

My temporary mess until I get the office remodeled. Cords hanging over the wall go to my photo department

The receiving, shipping, packing, and sorting department and library annex. No coins here right now, just a bunch of boxes and other stuff.

It's a dead ringer, we all need professional help,LOL, and i dont mean coin wise.
Organization is a real issue, and i admit in not being good at it.

Most creative/business minds are terrible at Organizing/keeping un cluttered or worse.
I had a ex girlfriend that had a horse ranch/and Real estate management company that she
kept everything so organized, she drove me crazy. I sure wish at times i could keep everything
spic and span.

Guess this is why we need to hire a neat freak once in a while!!!!! IMHO

Thanks to all for pictures, their really cool. I cant tell you how i hate sorting/organizing a collection
such as mine. A totally daunting, never ending mess that
i really hate doing.
