Show Us Your Work Bench

17 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I really appreciate the photos of projects on the workbench. There never will be too many pictures!! But I would also be interested in seeing your workbench. I am about to build a new bench in a new space in a different house in Toepka, KS. I finally get to unpack kits, tools, magazines and move in. So I'm looking for ideas for a new bench.

I work on a fold up card table in my room...it's not the greatest, but it's what I've got.

These pictures were taken just after I set up to work again last month. It's much messier now, with parts from my Mystery Dodge Daytona and about 12 other builds on it. Mostly bodys!

This is the Staging Area, AKA, my windowsill. When this shot was taken, I had some 1/64 NASCARs (my first, true love!) that needed to be repaired, and some that I made myself. I can fit about 9 models along it when it's clean, but it never is, I have space for about 3 now.

Interesting enough, my fan was on high when these pictures were taken.

Nice work areas. Wish mine was in a room of its own. I have to share space in my 3 yr olds room. It sucks when you rent. Here is a pic.

Bobby, is that RMR's 50 Suburban? I have one of them too. Smoothed it out though, it's not going to be anywhere near stock!

Yes that is an early RMR 50 Suburban. He has come a long way since I bought that. Top quality stuff that he puts out.

Yeah, I agree. I've got 5 of his items, the most I have from any resin caster. I got mine in Toledo 04...

Here's some pics of our hobby room. We're fortunate enough to have a room big enough for a desk and for the growing collection of kits that are piling up. Unfortunately we are running out of room and I will probably be selling quite a few of the projects I won't be building. Anyways...on with the pics...

Wow, Brian...that's pretty impressive! I hope ya don't do like I did: sell off the stash of kits and then regret it. But....if ya happen to find a desire to rid yerself of an 86 El Camino SS or a 79 or 83 Camaro kit....well, I'd be happy to trade ya for something.

I'm gonna refrain from posting a pic of my work area, cuz it's just a little corner of a table with stuff scattered hither and yon. But it's what I got and I'm grateful for it. Maybe one day I'll re-arrange my computer room so that I can have a workbench behind me and the computers in front of me...and then with my swivel chair, I could reverse that at any time. Hmmm...something to think about. Maybe I'll see if I can pick up a long card table....

You may have started something like an avalanche. :?
