I am happy because I have a happy, sprawly Pog:

He's smiling because you haven't found what he did yet. :whistle:

What makes me happy?  I've got all the pieces cut to make a massive upgrade to my work table.  I think I'll even do a before and after photo set.

Progress is going along quite smoothly.  Nearly done now.

So there really isn't a thread for this, that I could find, so I posted it here as it makes me happy.

Living in a small house has shown me that having a place for everything to be and having everything in it's place is a good thing.  I had sort of outgrown my hobby table and had run out of room for everything to be out of the way when not in use.  So, looking up at the amount of wasted wall space above my desk I decided to create a new desk that would put to good use that vertical space.

First what I was working with yesterday.  Keep in mind that it took me a few days to design the new plan, a few days to cut all the materials and another day to put it all together.
My desk, mostly stripped of everything.  You can see all my various files stuck to the light arm with magnets.


The plastic drawer units contain all my paints, basing materials, bits, and unstarted minis.  The shelves aren't particularly tall, but they did have a fair amount of space for things, in the begining.  Now onto the upgraded work station.

This is the best photo I could get as I was taking the photos with my phone.  As I was assembling the shelf unit today, I realised that I forgot to plan a shelf to cover the top drawer, so that will have to happen soonly.  I also took a pic some time ago of my spray system with the air tank that I made from an old propane bottle.  I had to clean the tank multi times to get the smell out, then sand blasted it to get the rust and old paint off.  Then primer, paint, tape, and more paint, and what was once junk is now fun recycled usefulness.  The airbrush on the left is a cheapo knock-off but works ok.  The one on the right is an Iwata Revolution CR.

Now for the task of putting it all back together.

@Penfold - That is great news. You can both settle into a more relaxed routine now (I hope).

@leadhead - I am officially envious of your work station. It beats the wotsits out of one end of the dining table.

Just wanted to second both statements. I really need to sort out my spare room so I can get a similar workspace myself.

Thanks again guys, she is getting used to seeing me more of the time now but i hadnot noticed how much she sleeps now about 14>15 hours a day.
I just have to get used to the 24 hour a day carer the one big con. :?

i to am envious as i have had the room but never the chance to convert as had to spend all the time down stairs to keep an eye on the wife, now lost the room to the carer as well so the end of the dinning table still for me  :D
