Morning Gents,

It’s been done before, I know but thought I’d encourage members old and new to share a picture of their work space.

Be it a special room devoted to moggeling or a tray on your lap in front of the Tv. Come on and join tidying up especially, let’s see warts and all!!

I’ll start the ball rolling with my mini disaster zoneface 20

I managed to grab some bench time late last night, but didn’t have the inclination to tidy up when I’d finished!


I have the last 2ft of the dinner tableface 22 and for a bit of storage I have added some shelves under the stairs.


Until I can organise another shelf I’ve pinched one of the kitchen cupboards for my overflow


One day I might get the small bedroom as my den dont know

Look forward to seeing where you create your masterpieces

Hi Si

You seem to have your stuff pretty well spread out. At first I thought the header picture was yours face 20

I share a room with the missus who sews and knits etc. It is a big room so plenty of space but her hobby does create "fluff" which can be a nuisance when painting. I am lucky to be able to leave the spray booth and the photo booth set up.

I thought exactly the same about the header Jim. We should have known better!laughface 20

I am not the tidyest of workers. Once my latest projects are finished I will be gutting the whole study and putting up shelves and cupboards etc. I need a platform for the computer as this takes up too much bench space

Jim....Yup I definitely have bench envysmile p I suppose one of the benefits of grown up children and retirement is getting the house back. I won’t wish my life away as I still got a while before I can retire. Top stuff mate, thanks for joining inthumbs up

Steve....I wish that the header pic was my bench.....hmmmmmmheart. From here it looks like you’ve got a nice area to play with, should be nice to remodel. There are some brilliant ideas on the net for organising your space to maximise you build time....ok so now I have potential bench envy tooface 20

Of course never enough room . It was worse last week , but words were said by Management as they came through. Si how did you ever get permission to take over part of the kitchen storage surprise

Hi all

I am another one who does a lot of the cooking. I really enjoy it and I'm a soft touch for kitchen gadgets - can't have too many gadgets face 20

I am rather OCD when it come to being tidy and organized. I am like it around the house generally. When I visit my daughter I have a terrible habit of "tidying up". Daughter goes ballistic!!

We are all different and work in different ways. One thing is for sure and that is the state of the work space has no bearing on the quality of the modelling.
