Hehe....

Yea , for a long time, I was a kitchen/computerdesk/bedroom floor builder.Metal shavings in the rug suck.

------

My workshop's ok.It's really a hodgepodge of shite tho......I'm just starting to get a handle on how I want the storage to work.I do , at this point , have enough shelf/storage area...

I'll call it a dynamic mess.

I dont work on my computers in my workshop, it's way to dusty and dirty.
I'll try and snap a few pics later since the batteries are dead right now in the camara.

My workshop is the dining room table and the wife hates it.

Like a few of you I've pretty much just worked on computers wherever I could. Unfortunately most of the time it was on the floor somewhere. I'm currently building a little computer room for myself (I think it's 7ft by 9ft) in the basement so I'll finally have an actual workroom. I'll try and get some pictures of the progress in the next little while.

Well, I would show you all apic of how we 'used' to do it waaay from the old days..... But, I dont think you will be interested in a tool kit the size of a pocket book that consits of a socket driver, a TORX-10 driver, a flat head, a star, and some tweezers, and a vial of a ton of screws and bolts that can put together a VW!

Still a work in progress, but I've now got a 9' X 9' room just for a workshop. Built-in bench, and one of those folding tables as well. Going to take a while to get everything in its place, but here's what we've got so far.....






I've also got a spare desk in my computer area which will be used for builds/testing once it's properly cleared....

Those "big awful looking tools" can be used for modding cases... :)

Heh......

The dart board came with the house and I saw no reason to take it down. The wood backing is great for mounting things like the router & power bars, and I figure I'll use the dart board itself as a bulletin board. :)
