Back in early December ’16, we bought a Harbor Freight workbench for my study. It replaced an old “tete-a-tete” that had originally been outdoor furniture, and one that did take up a fair amount of room in there. That space had become so crowded and cluttered that I just didn’t even enjoy going in there that much. The room does “double duty” as a modeling room and also a place for some of my firearms and assorted accoutrements associated with that hobby.
I decided to streamline the room somewhat, removing quite a lot of ammunition and other jetsam and flotsam. I built a tool-stand, rearranged my work area, added some plywood to my worktable’s top, and before I knew it, voila, I had some much needed space. It’s much more inviting now, and it’s really helped to re-motivate my scale modeling efforts. I really enjoy the room now. I really like that new workbench too. It has come in handy for many uses and it does look nice too. Oh, the room is still sort of cluttered but believe it or not, I do know where “almost” everything is located. But I’m afraid it would still drive an ADHD person to distraction though :).
I took some pics of the study to show how it turned out. If you have comments or questions, please feel free to share them!
