PostSubject: My new work area...   Sun 05 Oct 2014, 2:35 am

Hi all,

Since I came back to modelling, I have been using my kitchen table, but now I have managed to find something that I think would be ideal...

Please let me know what you think, good and bad or any improvements etc...

First one is just after being put into place (brother-in-laws are very handy)...



Now finished and loaded up...





The middle draw pulls out and the front of it folds down...





I had some small sticky hooks so thought I'd use them...



Used the top shelf for my paints etc...





And the bottom part I have used for the compressor and spare parts boxes, balsa wood etc...



Many thanks for looking and any thoughts or improvements gratefully received...

Andy...

Andy, That is a very cool work station. I like the idea of just shutting it up and the mess is gone.

Sam that's to clean. Nobody builds models there.

Many thanks both for the kind words...

Sam, I have to agree with Mr Z, your table is way to clean, everything in the new unit with the exception of the compressor used to be on my table...

I see you are next to a warm radiator Andy - ready for the coming cold blast of Winter. Cosy.

I like that Andy, nice neat and tidy and easily all put away looking tidy again when you're done.

One thing missing, (or I've missed it by looking too hard) ...... Where's the mug for tea/coffee? :)

I have a couple of suggestions for your new workspace. You might want to put up a piece of cork board to pin-up instructions. Peg board is another way to store items on interior cabinet space. Compressor might get noisy in a confined space, high density foam could fix that, also might need venting. We all should realize that in the UK living in small homes is the norm and by using a cabinet like that will be fun and productive.
Cheers Eh!

Small homes ? ....we call them snug and compact.

I have a large wardrobe on Ebay at the moment,
and I have been contacted by several families wanting to rent it !

A shoe box?  You must have been rich?
When I was a nipper we lived in a tent made of old newspapers.

A cigarette packet!!!

You must have been posh,  We lived in a torn crisp packet at the bottom of a waste bin. We worked so many hours to earn a dry crust, our dad used to make us get up two hours before we went to bed!!!

My poor English Ancestor got evicted from his cardboard box and came to Australia as a convict. He was forced to live on the beaches of the Great Barrier Reef where he drank beer and ate lobsters for the rest of his life. The poor man.

Too funny! We lived in a house when I was young, well, just sublet a portion of the coal bin in the Summer. In Winter we moved into the outhouse. Very convenient too!
