That's usually how I work on stuff, because then I can spread the project around me and work on it, instead of being limited to just a bench or other work surface. Plus, I *have* to pick up my stuff when I get done or else the dogs will play with the bits and pieces...if I used workbenches I would leave stuff cluttered all over them instead.
Actually, I *do* both of those: use a workbench/table/etc., *and* leave stuff all over it when I'm done, often losing tools and stuff for months or years because I suddenly need the work surface for something else, and have to rake all the previous stuff into a box....

I'm tempted; I have a few of the soda-can-sized caps from various linear power supplies that I am curious how good they still are (some are 30-40 years old, maybe 50, but probably don't have more than a few hundred hours use on them, if that). Also some Elna caps out of Sony 1" VTRs that I'm unable to find specs on, that used to be filters for the brushless tape reel drive motors and power supplies. (there are also lots of solid-state-relays in there that I wish I had a pinout and specs for, but can't find anywhere, and IR doesn't respond to inquiries about them).
