Hi guys I have renewed my membership so I can start making comments again to those members that have their settings set to private .
Its been a while I have been pretty busy working on my workshop.
I have now pretty much finished it I have done all the work myself Built workbenches 3m x 3m square all lacqured (Still putting in draws),Done the electrical wiring myself it has plenty of lights 4 banks of double fluero's and one single fleuro above the workbench,Double powerpoints everywhere (You can never have enough Power outlets),Fans above the workbenches,I have installed a fireplace for those cold Aussie winters(Already tested and works great),Installed Surround sound 10 speakers plus a Sub woofer in the roof arch with a Amplifier ,The TV is in with DVD player and a huge aerial outside to pull signals in from outter space,Intsalled Security lights outside (Which light up a grid square),All my tools are now in the shed I have my main tools on work stations with drop down power cords from the ceiling to plug those work stations in my Bandsaw,Lathe,Tablesaw,Bench sander,Circular saw,Drill press .
The phone is installed with a computer (old desktop) and a intercom to the house to buzz my wife and request a Cup of tea (Although it works as a double negative as well as she buzzes me and asks me to do jobs for her).
Finally I have put my built cars on shelves I can throw a painters drop cloth over them when Iam working on other things to minamize the dust (All my Nib's are still in the house for now).All in all its a cool place to be. It has taken me since late last year to finish this Shed/Garage is 10m Long x 6 m Wide I even had room to put the ride on mower in and my canoe.
Every guy needs a shed to escape too this is my domain .
I hope you enjoy looking at pictures of my Tamiya workshop as much as I enjoy working in it .
It has been a labour of love .
I have routered out a nice piece of old timber which hangs outside the access door which says 'Bringalongabeer' (Bring along a beer).
If you liked those pictures, you should see these...
My NIB Tamiya workshop
Now thats what I call a workshop / Hobby room, some serious artillery in there
well that sure looks like my kind of heaven , i wish my workshop was that tidy , very nice collection you have.
Wow, that's a cool Hooby Room...!!!!!
Bloke Heaven Stuart! looks like a perfect environment!
that looks like heaven on earth.
very nice workshop! i am not at all jelous....nope not one bit......
Now that's a proper man cave - well done! But where are the Snap On calendar girls???
Thanks guys for your comments .I really enjoyed building this shed and decking it out it has kept me really busy.I even had the wife caulking gun in hand going around the bottom of the shed filling in the gaps to stop rodents getting in.
I have the alarm system I just have not installed it yet .
Darn I knew I forgot something the calander girls I will have to do something about that pronto what was I thinking I really must get one serious added to the list .
Thanks again for your great comments
looks like a great place to escape to, mighty fine job you have done
Wow,that's a very nice room u got there
Wow!! that is my dream room!!!! You have spent some hours there I think.
The strip-lighting is essential for good visability, too many sheds have bad lighting, yours is perfect!
that looks like the perfect workshop. Great models, great tools.
wow Stuart that is a super shop and collection display facility, hard to beat clean and orderly for making things
I love how neat everything is laid out. An awesome retreat. Enjoy the fruits of your labour my friend.
That's a great workshop mate. I'd have it cluttered up in no time
Where the magic happens.
Now there's one helluva sweet workshop if ever I saw one - pup's plums fella
Great workshop you got there! The first thing what you must make is a cabinet for all your trucks away from the dust lol!
Hope you've ordered some more shelving Looks superb Stu!!
all i can say is wow.
Really nice workshop mate. Needs a tinny fridge tho, under the bench by the long handle vice I reckon.
BRAVO!!! Very jealous
Nice workshop,will be fertile to create new beautifull projects.
Wow, the man cave of my dreams. I read the whole description aloud to my wife so she can commit to memory all the things I want in mine. I do notice a lack of a map of the minefield and I like the Trespassing sign. I can only imagine the outside has changed a little since your last post(please link it) with the addition of barbed wire and LARGE motion activated following spot lights. I don't see the drop down ladder for the 50 cal on the roof. Oh wait, that is what is drawn on my build plans. I really like this and would love to come and visit, or have you come over and oversee the building of mine.
I win with the L O N G E S T post.
Who needs a house, when you have this place ??? I am still aiming at creating this IN my house, but I haven't progressed very far. There is just the one problem ... My Wife !!!
WOW!!!!!!! so you finaly got that work shop going looks like hobby haven well done and what a super collection you have there, its a great gettaway just one thing missing? a refrigerator to hold a coldie or ten lol
Nice setup Swarm
Nice, neat and tidy setup.. Looks great!..
Perhaps you should get yourself a one-way intercom instead, so you wont get 'buzzed' all the time.
Well, time to release some 1:1 scale models with this workshop!. Very jealous of the space and the machines!!!aarrgghhhh!!
Welcome back Stuart I knew you would sign up again . That is one smicko workshop you have there! Great to see all your hard work has produced this wonderful Tamiya Den!
Ha, nice opener there Stuart!!! Very tongue in cheek and I can see everybody appretiates the work you put into this workplace. It looks incredible.
Thanks guys for your comments they have overwhelmed me and have made it all that much more worthwile.
To answer the question of getting a fridge in I have one in there already. I keep all my tubes of Silastic ,No more gaps,Putty and Glue's in there as they stay soft and dont go off ,and of course those all important Beverages cold .
Thanks again for all your wonderful comments they are much appreciated
Now that's a shed! Do you ever come out?
Beautiful place to work on, I envy!
Where is your bed? I love your 'No trepassing sign'! Beautiful workplace!
Wish you lived in Wellington NZ, I'd pay rent for a corner! Great space, the hard work has paid off!
