I thought there was a newer thread than the one in the old forum, which I could resurrect, but I can't find it, so ...

I finally built a new workbench. My other one is just too cluttered, and trying to do reloading, the odd woodworking project, and electronics, all on a folding conference table is nearly impossible -- particularly for me. The material for this one was all free; I did spend little money on shellac and some corner brackets -- it's mounted to a cleat on the wall on one side, and my desk on the other. I figure it will never be this neat again, so I had to take a picture. Still a few additions to make to it, but I now have a mostly dedicated electronics bench.

A tidy desk is the sign of a sick mind, it's new so I'll cut you some slack, but I hope you plan to rectify that smiley

I suppose I could post pics of my office desk, and my other work table. That would put to rest any questions about my mental state.  smiley-confuse

Fear not. I've had the benchtop in place for a couple weeks, and it took only a few days for it to become completely covered. smiley

I shall satisfy the "messy desk" requirement. Haven't cleaned in a bit, and I just had to toss everything due to flooding. I have 3 benches. The first is for my computers and "clean" work (soldering, disassembly, etc.). The second is for using tools that I want no where near my computers (grinder, sander, etc.). And the third is for working on other people's computers.

Bench 1:

I should probably get a real network rack at some point...

Bench 2:

That pile of PVC in the middle is our Field Remote Expeditionary Underwater Device (FREUD).

Now we're talking, a bloke could really get some work done there smiley

OK, I'll see your messy bench and raise you an absolute tip of a workshop.


We lived under that tarp at the back while I finished building our motorhome.




This is what happens when your house sells too fast (should have asked for more) and you have nowhere to live because the motorhome isn't finished.

Of course such a state can only be achieved by persons of an extremely sound mind.

I just put that there for fun. Nice that someone recognized it for what it is. I do like the idea of having a squeeze bottle for water.

Nice. I'd have to get stuff out of storage to approach that.

I bow to your superior mess!

I'm not the OP, but an old hot sauce bottle to hold water for the soldering iron seems appropriate to me.
