My workbench is in my work/hobby/training room. The workbench has three stations. The computer station, where I do a lot of other work as well, the building station and the painting station. This also means that I have room to invite two fellow modellers to an informal build meet, which I can really recommend.
The bench is higher than a normal table, 90 cm, about the height of a kitchen bench. That means I don’t need to hunch when building, which saves my back and neck.
I just recently built the shelf above the bench. Behind the ledge, under the forward edge of the shelf, I installed LED lights with daylight colour. In the ceiling I have fluorescent lamps with daylight colour as well. It was really a major improvement of my workshop to install those lamps.
I keep most of my tools and my paints in drawers, and I try to keep the workbench as uncluttered as possible. Otherwise handling fairly large ship models would be a bit difficult. Also there are no tools on the wall behind the bench. Having torn down a few masts of my ship models while reaching for tools on the back wall, that’s something I learned the hard way. Note also the reference books on a music stand beside the bench and the tripod for the camera, to document the build.
