I’m a bit late to the game – took 2 weeks vaca over the holidays to spend a crowded Christmas with my 6 kids, 3 kids-in-law, one soon-to-be son-in-law, and 5 grandkids – so haven’t been keeping up with posts very well!
We just moved in November. In my two prior homes, I had an entire room for my man-cave, or at least a full area in a spare room. In my new abode, I’m relegated to a corner of the master bedroom, so had to ditch my old modeling desk (it was older and uglier than my wife could stand), and modify a nice cherry-finish computer desk my daughter was abandoning.
Mounted my lighted magnifying lens, put the paint shelf I build on the back of it – and good to go!
Early in my modeling career I had no room and worked off of the kitchen table, so got used to working out of a stocked tackle box. I still work out of that box today, even when I have a desk. It just keeps a lot of stuff organized nicely! When I’m done building, I just close the box and shove it under the table (along with all my reference books – which you can see under there).
I guess you make due with what’s available!
