|My trusty old Progen Paintsation, which now looks a little worse for wear. The main|
issue is lack of space once I have all my tools, glues an brushes and what-not on it.
Once, loaded with tools there's actually not much room left to build/paint on!
So, the problem was - how to add a reasonable amount of extra storage space to my Paintstation while still keeping it manageable as a tray I could move about? (I work, mainly, in our lounge and so, every so often, the wife insists I remove all clues of my ‘toys’ when we have guests.)
After a few rough sketch ideas, I settled on an under-tray draw storage solution. A simple 'bolt on' box that I could attach to the bottom of my tray...
|My sketch of how I would like the bolt-on draw section to attach to my|
workstation top. This also shows how I would like the draws to be.
Being a complete DIY clutz, I sent my designs up to my very talented big brother and he quickly worked out how my design could be made using MDF and wood. Well, the task is near complete and Ian has sent me the first preview of my under-tray storage draw...
(Note: the actual bit about the workbench starts about a minute in - Ian starts with a look at his new action camera that we have been talking about!) :)
Nifty eh? There's more than enough storage there to keep my tray uncluttered, yet it will still keep the whole unit portable.

Can’t wait for it to arrive. Big thanks to my brovver.
