New digs...

I'm back. Woulda posted something sooner, but the camera I used in the older posts has died, which left me in a bind. Sorry in advance for the quality of these photos...

I've been painting a lil lately ...gaming a lil as well. Loving the new chaos codex. I'll post some thought on it at some point in the near future.....

In other news, my step son wanted a bigger bedroom, which means cleaning out the upstairs storage room and moving all my modeling/painting crap out of the bigger room and into his current, smaller room. This was the perfect opportunity to redo my work space.

This was my old set up.....

It  had some issues, namely a lack of space and an inability to hide the mess. With that in mind, I stole an old computer cabinet that been sitting in my parents garage collecting dust for 10 years...

Again, sorry for the quality of the pics....my cellphone camera isn't the best. The room is still a mess as well, but at least the cabinet is in working order.

This thing rocks....I love the fact that there are doors on this thing, making it very easy to hide the mess. The main shelf has plenty of room for paint racks, basing flock and brush storage. Underneath the main shelf are two roll out shelves...the top one is a great height as a main work area, with plenty of room for paints and pallets. The one below it works as a holding area to store model I'm working on or as a prep/construction area.

Below those two roll out shelves is another shelf that you would normally put a printer on.  Here, I'll put different projects I'm not currently working on. Along the bottom of the cabinet is a plastic office drawer for storing extra paint, modeling plastic and plenty of room for cans of primer and sealers.

Up top, I added a $12, 2 setting LED light strip from Lowes to brighten up the cabinet a lil. In the middle, I stuck a plastic drawer unit I stole from work. Made a great place to store weathering powders, sculpting supplies, spare basing flock and basing bits. The two side compartments up top will house a set of computer speakers and an ipod dock for listening to music/podcasts while I work....

Eventually I want to stick a magnetic strip along the inside wall of the cabinet to hold files and other tools..... maybe a couple lights on swing arms I can pull out as needed.......

So, that's my new work area....thanks for reading, and I'll see you next time.

  4. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad
