That's not a mancave, it's a hobby shop! :-)

I recently installed some paint shelves nearer my spray booth. Handy!

Something about seeing all those little bottles of paint all lined up neatly like that just makes a place feel like home :)
Thanks Kindly

Heh, my bench still looks pretty much the same as it did when I posted to this thread back in 2009 (see this page:  http://www.scalemodeladdict.com/SMF/index.php/topic,39.30.html)

Had a real tidy ready for my next biggie

Made some paint shelves from some old bed slats





Put everything that was on the bench into my unused tool box from the garage



the full effect








Take care

Had a bit of a clean up and made/installed a few things.



Oil paint holder (made from an L piece of aluminum and painstakingly cut on a chop saw!)



Tool holders



Plastic holder (made from an old Amazon Kindle box)

That is a good looking work space Ian, love the print in that last picture. Hopefully, I will get some shots of my new workspace up right soon,the wife and I are moving into a new apartment, with one room for me and my "crap" ;D. And I think moving my "crap" wore her out today, we got back after the last run of carting boxes, and she crashed hard, within 5 minutes she was out like a light.

Finally part way through the moving, and I took a bit of time to start emptying some boxes, and getting things a bit organized. I still have a ways to go yet before I get any full "mancave" shots but consider this a teaser at least.  ;D

Thanks Kindly

Finally about 95% of the way there for my new man cave, just need to get my booth moved in, and get a chair, and I will be pretty much good to go. I will let the pictures do the talking....

machine area, and stash shelves

Nice layout there, Dan

Great setup.

Off topic question: How accurate have you found the Dremel Rotary Tool Work Station? I was thinking about getting one.

Don't expect perfectly zeroed holes, as it has play in it horizontally. It is a far site better than the older version of the dremel press though. But if you don't mind a bit of trade off in 100% accuracy it is worth the money (to me at least) and the foot print is small. And if you are careful with your setup, and clamp things firmly, it is good.

Quarlane, thanks :)

Hey Sub, I like those red cabinets and your main tool chest. Any chance you got these from a readily available store/commercial site?

Love the cave, i am envious as mine is still just 1/3 of my bedrood as my 3 kids are taking up the only other rooms available for a good mancave.. Maybe i should invest in a bunkbed and have then condense down into two room! LOL
