I went to IKEA tonight (December 26th) and picked up 4 more of the shelves that go inside the cabinet units. They are like $2.50 each so for $10 I became even more organized with my storage, feels good!

 

Here's what the cabinet units now look like and how I organized them after moving a few things around to where I felt like they made even more sense.

 

Cabinet #1 - WOOD! Plinths, bark, balsa, and building materials.

Cabinet #2 - Stamping, staining, plaster, talc, hirst arts, and hot glue stuff. You can see my bits bin underneath which isn't full yet, lots of room to expand in it. I've got one of my TaoTronics lights stuck to the side of it.

Cabinets #3 & 4 

 

#3 - Soaps, Resins, Sculpting putties, clays, and epoxies, water effects, oxide paste, etc. Also has the TaoTronics light mounted underneath. 

#4 - Mediums, primers, dull coat, glues, blue tack, etc.

Cabinet #5 - Basing materials only

Is there / will there be under-cabinet lights? If not, might I suggest setting aside a bit of budget space for them when feasible?

 

ETA: And because I'm dumb, I forgot the important part: Looking good! Can't wait to see more progress! ::D:

Yeah I'm thinking of doing some under light cabinets LED strips AND/OR a bigger light that'll clamp onto the corner area of the painting spot which will be a draftsman's light, I saw some on amazon for like $100 and really liked the look of them. Right now I have 6x 6inch 90W LED daylight bulbs in the ceiling and the TaoTronics directly above my paint area, which I mounted to the bits box and under cabinet using that super strong double-sided sticky tape.

 

Thanks!

Duh! Those are secret.  Looking good (for such a small place.)  My finshes are much less, but my small table is 6' x 4'  The large table is 4'x13'.  But it is in the basement, something that the don't have in your area.

Looks good so far and I am sure that it will be even better once you have it the way you want it.

 

I will say that I am more than a little jealous that your room has windows.

 

That is the only thing mine doesn't have that I would really like in a game room.

I hate you a little.  :-)  Love the room, and love the paint rack.  Is that the original Kraken one from TGJ, or is it from the newer company?

      So one of my players bought a hero forge 3d model and then printed it. I've based it, primed it and now I'm painting it in the color combination he requested. I have just finished the base layer (the goggles will be gold with green glass)
      Hope he's happy when it's finished :D

      Hello everyone, I plan on crafting some blights out of polymer clay. Today I made the armatures out of copper wire and glue and pined them to some old 20mm bases. I plan on using fimo air polymer clay, decorative sand (maybe some rocks too), and a variety of dried tea leaves and spices. Then I will prime them using cheap spray paint and paint them using cheap acrylic paint. I hope they turn out nice. All kinds of tips, suggestion or criticism are welcome :D

      I have been a gamer my entire life. Early in 2017, I decided to take my years of manufacturing and construction experience and build myself a gaming table.  
      I wanted something sturdy, something that I could see myself passing to my children someday. A table dedicated to gaming at night and yet able to be a beautiful piece of dining room furniture the rest of the time.  
      My first gaming session with my friends ended with two of them asking how quickly they could have their own and how much it would cost. That got the wheels rolling. Two months later, I showed the tables to a large group at Grand-Con. Several hundred positive comments later and here we are.
      Grand Con 2017 The designs are set. Choose from coffee, dining, and pub tables.
      Coffee Table   Overall dimensions 2 foot 6 inches X 3 foot 6 inches Internal Play Area 2 foot X 3-foot x 3.5 inches deep Coffee Table in Knotty Pine with Hairpin Legs                                        Dining Table
      Overall dimensions 3 foot 6 inches X 5 foot 6 inches 
      Internal Play Area 3 foot X 5 foot x 3.5 inches deep 
      Dining Table in Cherry With Two-Piece Top Dining Table in Cherry With Kona Stain Table quickly and easily converts from dining room to gaming.  Pub Table
      Overall dimensions 4 foot 6 inches X 4 foot 6 inches  
      Internal Play Area 4 foot X 4 foot x 3.5 inches deep

      Hi, ok so it seem having a long "put everything here" thread is not easy for moderator, I am opening a dedicated one for those WH40K orcs :)
       
      I am done with the skin pass, obviously more details to go in with brush.
      going next to get the other parts base coated I think , so I can get an overview of the overall look and color for those guys ( for now it look very green xD )

      The Mexican holiday Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) is coming up on November 2.
       
      These are two figures that I sculpted for Reaper, albeit very slowly -- starting in November 2014 and ending in October 2016 (with long periods of inactivity, and other sculpting and painting projects along the way).
      Izzy "Talin" Collier drew the character designs:

       
      Reaper sells them as "Day of the Dead Cavalier" and "Day of the Dead Duchess", DHL 03822 and 03823.
      If you search for them in Reaper's online store, don't use the words "of" or "the" because those words will blank out all results.  Just look for "day dead".
      (I refer to them as "Diego de Muertos" and "Diana de Muertos".)
       
      At last, it is time to paint them. 
      I don't know whether I will use vibrant colors all over or mostly subdued (black / brown) with limited spots of color.
      I've done some online image-searches, watched the Pixar film "Coco", etc.
      The traditional flower of the holiday is marigolds (orange-yellow), so that color will be part of the palette.
      I think I will put them together on one base, but I also don't know how ambitious I'll be on the basing around them -- a bare cobblestone plaza, an altar (sugar skulls, ofrendas, etc.), or more extensive structures and hanging decorations.
       
      My first step of painting is to work out the values with blends of Black and White Brush-On Primer:

       
      Thanks for reading,
      Derek
