Extremely impressive use of such a small space!

The shelves look professionally done did you buy a kit or are they completely build by yourself they look great. Ikea had some great cabinets once called billy and they where all glass I have 8 of them and wish I had bought more.

Incredible...would make me a little claustrophobic, and no "questionable" friends would be allowed to game in there.  I have far too many buddies who would put an elbow or a head through one of those display cabinets while gaming...

Well first off simply amazing stuff! I am inspired to try something myself!

Next question in a few of your pictures I saw some parachutes, where did you get them?!

Where did you find the glass shelves and doors?  I am moving to Bletchley and have to make a new hobby space.  Yours is truly inspirational.

I dont think you wil be ordering your glass from Birmingham England will you?

All of the shelves are 6mm `clear float `with only the front edge polished,i used 6mm instead of 4 mm to stop any bend in the glass from the weight of too many figures,all furniture glass is polished d toughend safety glass but it was a lot lot cheaper to buy `clear float `instead and only the front edge can cut you so only the front edge got polished ,this saves as its priced by the meter when polishing(there is an awfull lot of glass there) :-O

The doors are all Toughend Safety Glass (this is automatically polished edge all round) then i bought some stick on handles off the internet and aproached a whole sale supplier also off the internet too to buy the black plastic running track, a company i know and use from Germany sold me the glass shelf supports.

Cheers AL
