In the light of my paint shaker disaster I thought I best post an update on my cave, if only to show I have done something right recently ...  ;D

I have been in a bit of a hobby funk for the last year or so, as accumulated detritus had so taken over that any thought of being productive was quickly extinguished by the hours of cleanup required before even starting.

So radical action was needed, the 'lead wall' was moved to the garage (after a solid week of cleaning it out), the two 1.2M Ikea 'Jerker' desks met a similar fate and 5.4M of pallet racking was installed. I had some special extra legs made for the racking so that the second shelf on each unit could extend out as a workbench, maximizing shelving and bench space.



The whole cave, computer and painting benches on the left, casting and construction on the right and my handy dandy tool trolley at the rear.



Lower shelf with computers ...



With all the extra bench space I needed more lighting, so I got some high CRI LED strip from store.yujiintl.com and made a strip and modified a couple of 'death rays' out of some Ikea lamps ...



The result is just about the perfect lighting setup for painting, the following shot shows the lights on with two 'triple bright' fluro's on the right and the LED's on the left ...



Cheers!

That's not a workbench. That is a Spectre Lair.

Not to mention the serious disk space in those NAS servers!  Has to be a spectre base.

Quite a nice pallet in your room. Lots of cheery sunlight too. Not at all like the dungeon I paint in.  :)
