Comfortable Work Benches

I know it looks like a royal mess, but this is where I've lately hit my stride in terms of building . . . I think I know where everything is . . . enjoy. . .

Oh, I like that, I think I will carve it on wood and put it right over my place of work.

If I were you I would call in the bomb squad to see if anymore casualties lurk in the aftermath of the event. I see CSI has already set up the work lights.

believe it or not, I work with the garage door open all day just in case. Don't want to burn my mustache one day trying to light a cigar . . .

Do you always store your burnt out light bulbs on the stairway? Isn't that a little dangerous in the middle of the night when you get inspired and trip your way down to the workshop?

I also notice there isn't the usual clutter of unopened kit boxes. I admire a man that goes out, buys a kit and builds, and finishes a kit before he goes out and buys another. That shows strength and maturity.

BRAVO! I say.

I wonder if other folks, in particular so many of the newer folks, will mind posting pictures of their workbenches too . . . it's all about the eye-candy, right?

Keep in mind these photos were made right after everything was torn out and reconfigured. The condition shown lasted about 20 seconds.

Very cool. Some of you guys keep a clean and tidy workspace, which in many ways makes me jealous . . . I spend most of my day looking around for stuff I know I will find two days later . . .

Thought I'd post a link to my "playroom" pics. Not as neat and organized as some of you guys, but light years ahead of working out of a toolbox at the dining room table at the last house we lived in!

Well, tgabreu--the fact is your workroom is beautiful, and filled with kits I hope you will have enough time to finish . . . you've got a great collection there . . . which makes you into a bonified plastic fanatic!

Cheers and welcome to our group!
