Here is my workbench with cat outdoor enclosure through my bedroom window.



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

Man I love that lighting by Joe something that I feel I cannot have enough of, and something that I feel I do not have enough yet.

At any rate recently started cleaning up my gaming room, thought it was worth some pics.

Here are pics of my table work area. It is sad that it still looks a bit cluttered and yet I know it is the most organized, and the cleanest it has ever been... :(
I should have taken a before and after picture so that one could appreciate the difference, suffice to say the pile of stuff stacked on top of the desk has been reduced such that one can actually see the table top.

These are all the pictures of my workbench, but if you want to see the gaming room proper, which contains the work area, feel free to follow the link.

It's lot easier to get good lighting now, these were not available when I got my LED strips:

https://store.yujiintl.com/products/bc-series-remote-phosphor-bulb?variant=824493205
Share with some mates and the cost is US $30-$40 for 2 bulbs that will last ~25,000 hours. (I recommend the 10W 5000K)

Combine them with the ubiquitous IKEA Tertial lamp:
https://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/50355442/
Which are dirt cheap and can be mounted horizontally or vertically via clamp or screws and you can get a great high CRI setup for US $50-$60 plus postage.

Cheers!

I only hope to have just a work bench little alone a whole room, at current I have to use the dining room table, which take time to set up and to take down but I manage (sigh) some day.

My own workbench, “toddler-proofed”.  It’s kept him out so far.  I’m dreading the coming “velociraptor figures out doorknobs” moment.

Thanks for your kind comments. Some lovely painting desks pictured here. Having natural light available at your fingertip is very handy.

Best wishes to you all,

Helen

I admire your chaos to order Menelduir.  Pictures here are my attempts to bring order to the figures in my basement.  I really need better light in the underground hobby area as discussed below.  Thanks for the suggestions!

One photo rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise - sorry.

one of my earliest, and most vivid, modeling memories comes from the cover of a 1930s Model Railroader magazine. it was a picture of a brass locomotive in O scale sitting on a kitchen table. on the corner of the table was a little clamp on vise, and an eggbeater style hand drill. various files, screwdrivers and a hammer rounded out this fellow modeling kit.

that dining room table is your place of honor!

I am working on setting up my work area now. Went to IKEA to buy new furniture. I bought a Malm desk and two book shelves to go on either side. I am now in the process of looking for organizational items to go on top of the desk and figuring out the lamp. I was going to buy the swing arm one from IKEA, but they changed the rating on the wattage of bulbs it takes and I want to up bulb them with LED daylight bulbs to help with photography. The IKEA ones don’t meet the power rating I want for Wattage.

Remember, that wattage rating is actually a heat rating based on incandescent bulbs. If you are using led or fluorescent bulbs, look at the actual wattage rather than the equivalent wattage. A “60 watt” led bulb is as bright as a 60 watt incandescent. If you look at the small print, it actually uses 12 watts or something.
