Third shot shows the real beauty of this room. 
It's small, 11' x 12', and I can close the door and crank up the tunes. 

This end of the house is all mine!  Woohoo! 

Out of picture to the left is the tool box and book shelf. 
Just enough space to keep me out of the bars.
 
On the other hand I haven't seen my wife in 6 months.

Now that's a workbench,
not much would get done if it was mine.

A big stereo system to turn up the music,
and a couple of drinks to get the party started....

Boy am I envious.

Geeze, a nice clean well lighted space. 
Nice Tom.

My world right now is in a state of des(re)pair. 
My work space is kind of tore up. 
New windows though, nice view. 
That's the boss's garden down there. 

No insulation, yet.  Winter is Coming. 
Much to do before I can play again. 
I have to put all the walls back together after my match with Mr. Sawzall. 
But there is a new header in the wall that wasn't there before. 
I am sure that the house is very thankful for that. 

What a mess.

Some really nice, or headed toward nice work areas.

So here's mine:





There is usually a laptop sitting about where the Optivisor, file and Chromebook are sitting, but it is Sunday.





In my defense, up until four months ago my work bench/office was in the train room.
It is now in the library and I'm still fitting stuff in.

Most of the "supplies", the airbrush station and the track/scenery tools,
are still in the train room which is now a hobby room.

About six months ago I had been in the same situation.
 
My workbench was in the closet of the train room. 
I ended up removing the closet door to give me more space for my chair. 

It was big enough for small projects,
but for something like the roundhouse there was just no way. 

I didn't hesitate when my wife gave up the small room,
she had been using for an art studio.

She actually thought it was going to be used as a guest room. 
We don't need no stinkin' guests.

Tom, 

That's exactly how my "new" workspace came to be.
The library (actually a bedroom) had been set up with a sofa bed against the table along the back wall of the room.
We could use the room for reading or relaxing but the sofa bed made it a guest room as well.
We already had one guest bedroom that doubles as my wife's music room.

Nobody we know comes to AZ so the sofa bed never once got used as a bed in 12 years.
Besides, I'm not really into "guests" anyway. Too cranky. Donated.

We moved part of one bookcase's contents to small bookcases in other rooms to give me some shelf space.
Now I just need to get around to separating my stuff into movable piles to go back and forth to the shelves in the train room.
 
It'll never be posh like your setup though.
I'd never do any work.

Tom

Ha ha..."we don't need no stinkin' guests"!!!
That's why I have a 2 car garage for my layout and workshop..."we don't need no stinkin' garage!"
The cars can sit outside and get proper "weathering".
Guests?
They all congregate in the garage anyway.

Woodie

I don't have a work bench, as it would take space from the layout
(and I don't have a great deal of space there as it is).
Also, underneath the fascia and curtains is pretty much full anyway.

I keep all my modeling stuff in three large Tupperware bins
(one of which has the scenery stuff, and it's on top as it gets used the most often),
and when I need to use them, I break it out to use on the dining room table.

All my paints and brushes, for example,
are in a long, shallow flat-bottom plastic container,
so it doesn't take long to set up.

I mean the workbench,

does anyone have a tidy bench?

:Crazy:............Peter" 


Well you did ask Peter so....................!





I find I just want and need pretty well everything I model with to be to hand, crowded as it gets.  :hyp:

But I do have loads of boxes that keep small things tidier - sort of! :w:


Doug

I just noticed that cool-man project you got going on your bench. 
Is that a 1934 Travel-lift? 

Where'd ya get the drawings from. 
I think I need one of those.
