New Hobby Desk
Got a Little more done on my basement desk project...need to add LED lights and get a glass top made up... ordered some paint racks, add a power strip and other stuff to hold stripwood and other things. ill keep plugging away at it !!!!
Lookin’ good, Craig.....time to get it cluttered up with a build
Nice Craig...Great space for great work...
Still too neat! Great work space. Needs a project now.....Rick
Great looking work area
Beautiful builds must arise from such a beautiful work space..
Thanks Guy's.....I kind of had to build something nice in my Basement man cave. Its were I spend most of my time with all my other collectables I have... everything is displayed were I can see it and enjoy it. Been in a modeling Slump so I'm hoping building a new hobby area and transferring everything from old to new will get me off my Butt and start building again and get me out of this armchair mode I'm in.
Just browse on this forum , look at al the beautiful builds, nice kits and you'll be motivated for sure !!
Come on Graig...
Putting Roll-top Desk top to use!!! I was going to throw this in the burn pile... thought I would never use it....but found a use for it. If I have to do grinding/sanding or anything that will make a mess ill do it in here. Contain the mess and make it easy on myself. Not done with it yet I think ill make a set of leg's for the back to steady it better tomorrow.
Heck ya! And if you have the place to exhaust it, you could cut in a small fan in the back for fume/dust removal.
At first thought I saw a paint booth again with the exhaust fan. Lots of possibilities there. We modelers are resourceful for sure. Love to see what you end up with.....Rick
I see a rolling wet bar in the making.
Looks like the basement hobby desk will be going upstairs in a spare bedroom to replace my old hobby desk which I scrapped this week. I'll make the move after I revamp the room with new carpet and paint and some other things I want to do. Don't need 2 desk's Right??
Craig, i have 2 desks...
One is what most people would refer to "the formal dinning table" Then, i have a good size glass top hobby desk upstairs....
The formal dinning table desk doesn't have any hobby lights... but, it does have a chandelier for light.... this way i can work on walls and castings with the family...
The deal my wife and i made was table-packing blanket-cardboard box- then a single piece of glass.
whatcha gonna build?
What am I going to build?? what's your Question.
are you gonna build a model?
Got to much on my plate at this moment so hobby time is on the back burner right now.
Great looking work space, so nice to have everything close at hand.
Karl, Thanks glad you like it.... hope I can put it to use soon when I get caught up around the house on some projects I want to finish.
went to Home Depot to pick up a couple things for the desk project been in the mood to work on it today....there's a Ace Hardware close to me but your paying Double in price!!!!! so I hate Ace were Home Depot I get 10-percent off for being a Military Veteran so I always shop were they take care of us Veteran's
Craig- where i lived when i separated there was an ace. I went there for hardware; nuts bolts ect..
Then i was at Lowe's one day... same hardware was 1/3 the price of ace!
However, i've since moved and there's an ace by me again... this one is very reasonable..
But, yeah... the military discount is nice.

Everywhere should have a military discount, in my opinion. Thank you all.
Alex, I know 10 percent is not huge but at least there making a effort to do something for our Armed Forces..... Lowes gives 10 percent to but there not close to me...... Karl That would be nice
I hope all you guys effected by Uri are staying warm and safe!!!
