  1. So after finding myself working at my computer desk or gaming table (or on my lap) due to lack of space at my actual hobby table, I decided it was time to do some cleaning so I could go back to just sitting down and painting instead of spending time moving/balancing paints and partially completed project, which doesn’t inspire much creativity. an older picture back from when the painting table was usable... the airbrush is in the unfinished part of the basement, with the hood properly vented to the outside. TV was moved onto a cobbled-together platform I made with scrap wood onto the desk. Some Ikea Besta frames were added to the walls next to my computer table and above the painting table. Content is not final as I need to sort out all my storage and display space, but it’s getting knickknacks off both desks for the moment. Unfinished projects or works in progress will go into the unit above the desk, freeing up space for whatever I’m tackling at the moment. I might put some lights under the unit, but the ikea ones make pretty yellow light. Will have to find a better alternative. Next up will be a drawer unit under the desk that will hopefully welcome the various paints, materials and things spread everywhere.
  2. Earlier this year I stumbled on the IKEA Kasseby mini monter, and realised that with a bit of work it would be suitable for showing off miniatures... so I bought 2. (One for home and one for the office) These are almost exactly 50mm deep, and the inside is about 10mm wider and taller than the glass in the door. So I grabbed a couple of sheets of 5mm Foamboard and hacked them into pieces. First a few that was 50mm wide and as long as the width of the cabinet inside, and some pieces that was 45 x 50mm. Then a few that was 63mm wide and the same length. And finally a single really wide piece. And matching 45mm wide pieces to go with them. That ended up being nearly 3 x A3 sheets of board. Now to put it all together... One piece in the back first, then pieces at the sides. You can use thinner board in the back, or even skip it completely if you want, but the gray foam looks so tacky... (If you use thinner foam you will need to adjust the size of the pieces on the side from 45mm to whatever fits your boards) Then add a piece on top, another in the back, pieces on the side and so on. Note that I use 50mm wide pieces both as shelves and as backing for the lower levels. I also don't bother adding a bottom layer. Some might want to add that. Keep on building till you reach the top... Please note that there's absolutely NO GLUE used in this construction. I actually didn't cut the board for the back and sides on the top until after all the other shelves were in place, to get a resonably snug fit. Now you just close the door, hang it on a wall and start loading it up with minis... This cabinet can also be hung in landscape mode. Then you'll need longer pieces, of course, and you will need the back pieces as they help carry the weight of the minis. I picked 50mm spacing between the lower shelves because it was also the depth of the shelves, and I'm a sucker for anything that makes the design easier.... If you have a lot of large Bones, or lots of 15mm armies, you just might want to pick other numbers.... Finally if you have many small minis that fit on tiny bases (20mm square bases, maybe) just cut a strip of 5 or 10mm thick foamboard about 22mm wide, and lay on top of the shelves, in against the back plate to stagger them.
