So I realised recently that my workspace had gradually been reduced to about three square inches by my slovenly habits of organization. So I decided to use my recent games budget for some of those nice-looking flat pack organizing furniture (what else to call them?) from Gamecraft Miniatures. And although I neglected to take a “Before” picture, those who’ve seen any of my photos can infer the level of prior disarray from the background. Not only could I not find anything, I was accumulating debris and dust, and destroying my brushes by not keeping them upright and clean. Some of my models were also accumulating unplanned battle damage – suffice it to say, it wasn’t working out.
This is the “after:”
WAY better. And I have to say the Gamecraft pieces are all super clean, and go together exceptionally easily and sturdily with just some wood glue. I strongly recommend them. The jig in lower left, especially, is wonderful, and fits 2 1/2″ roofing nails beautifully, which make great painting stands for 3mm scale tanks.12/08/2017 at 20:58 #69769kyoteblueParticipant

It will of course return to a more ‘natural’ state soon?

Very neat and tidy! I don’t have a permanent painting desk, or it would just end up covered in crap. The dining table gets appropriated instead, so I’m forced to be somewhat neat as I have to lug everything up and down stairs.

I clean up my painting desk every couple of months. It always feels like a new fresh start.

I currently do not have a project table. What i normally use is absolutely buried in project and boxes and paints. Multiple layers. An gaming archaeologists dream… However: It will soon be cool enough to resume moving things around in my garage and retrieving boxes and storage bins, etc (it gets to be 125*F in there in summer time…), add some shelving to the “office” (was a dining room) as well as a trio of sliding barn doors to seal it off (we have kittens, who are truly destroyers of worlds!!!) and I should be able to organize everything and set up an actual project space! Wooooot!
