Hobby desk of the future! 😉
So the wife and I finally decided that our old desks were not affective enough, last week we both upgraded our desks to more officiant ones with built it storage!!!
My old crappy desk! To small not a lot of storage!
My new amazing desk!
Best feature the see through lexan plastic top you can see all your tools and what is in the top drawers! I love that I can have my current miniatures I’m painting in the drawers so I can see what I want to work on next.
The drawers go the whole length of the desk and the depth of it too! Look at all that storage! But that’s just the beginning !
So many drawer and space for tools and supplies paint brushes paint etc , I even have a drawer dedicated to bases and basing supplies!
Minis in blisters for a rainy day! 😉
So much floor space back now and it is so much easier to make progress on projects with all my tools in my desk!
So some of you maybe asking where can I get a desk like that!?! Well just so you know, there not cheep! Think the opposite of IKEA furniture! You still have to assemble most of it some of it is preassembled but it’s still like 6x more expensive than any IKEA desk!
There called, “The Original ScrapBox company”.
Just an example of what they offer! This is one of the smaller desks but look at all that storage in such a small space!!! Well now that that is done it’s time to get control of garage I bought 6 sturdy metal storage shelves to store things in plastic bins I will finally get control over 30 years of Games workshop stuff I’ve collected. Just my unassembled epic miniatures take up two 72qt hefty bins! And Just my Warhammer 40k Orks take up 4 of those bins. I need to get cracking before winter comes before it’s to cold to organize the garage. I would love to finally label all my stuff so I know what’s what! 😀
Oh before I go, here is the first terrain I knocked out on my new desk I think it’s a new wrecked In time to completion it took me only 3 hours from start to finish!
Made some lava rock With high density insulation foam. By plucking at it with wooden clay sculpting tools. I covered the foam with Mod Podge then when it dried I used black acrylic paint and dry brushed a 1 to 3 mix of black and gray blue, then I did the highlights on the highest edges with just the gray blue. Then finished off with Vallejo Weathering effects, Engine 73.817 Petrol spills. To give it a obsidian look to it. I think I’m happy with the results. Just needed some basing and it’s done I have the first two pieces for my AoS Realm of fire terrain ready for gaming!
Well that’s it for now, I’m off to build more shit 😉
