Hello Hauk

basically I think your idea and would like to support this with a contribution from me.


Here I am on my router cutter and straight for the first Frithjof brick panels.


At this old door on a simple wooden frame I have done about 30 years my model work.


Here I am working on my new job at the Xrot of my buddy William.


Motorised height adjustable workstation for model building, with 63 to 130 cm max. Working height.

This height-adjustable work is a gift from my son, who developed these tables as a designer.
Such a table is just perfect, and you can also work comfortably while standing on the table.

Here are a couple shots of me and my incredibly messy workspace. The self-portrait was achieved using the highly sophisticated trick of holding the camera at arm's length:

WOW!...and I thought I was a mess. At least I can usually retain the prerequisite 8-square inches of clean workspace. Grin Grin Grin

My model bench took over my furniture showroom in the barn when I closed the business. Everything of mine seems to be slowly moving out of the house and into the barn. Glad I don't have a dog house.



And this is me in the big workshop where all the beer drinking goes on.

I don't have a work bench so I envy all of you who can just walk away from a project and pick it up again later. I model on my rolling work table between printing jobs which needs to be cleaned off at regular intervals.

Really like Ray's ancient old phone - and Chester, sharp saws and beer drinking?

I don't have a suitable picture of my smiling puss, but here's a long shot of the work room:





Marc, I'd love to see more of that truck on the bench. 
Geez, I have enough trouble painting with my hands,
and here you are painting with your TEETH.

That one is actually brand new. But I do have an old, black, "phone company" rotary phone under my desk, plugged into the extra phone jack. The old-fashioned ringer is a lot easier to hear if I'm outside or something.

Chester,
That second photo of you in the shop is great. Covet the shop, and the image looks like it's straight out of a Lands End catalog, or a Ralph Lauren ad in Vanity Fair.  Grin

Ken,
Shoot, I was going for the debonaire painter look.  The truck is not quite ready for public viewing.......in a while. Cheesy Nice bright, and orderly workspace you have there.
