Just made myself a new oak shelf recently. It is very useful.

The pristine condition of the desk in the picture is not going to last, though. The only bad thing about having a humongous desk is that your mess has a larger area to expand into, and it's alot harder to clean up in the end  :icon_biggrin:


NOTE: That flourescent light is the best thing that ever happened to me! A bit noisy, but its other qualities more then make up for it

I'd love to post a pic of mine, but my workbench is the small space on my desk between my keyboard and me, it's about 20cm deep and 70cm wide, wouldn't make much of an image really lol.
Mine used to be the same. I used to shove the keyboard to the back and build in front of it.
I use the "front of the keyboard tray" method, too.  ;D

Cleaned my work desk up today - it's literally a desk - and thought I'd take a pic while it's tidy.

I work on a cutting board to protect the desk, parts in the small drawers in front of me are common for finishing (jacks, switches, etc.), above me their PCB parts (caps, diodes, resistors, etc.). The white box is my headphone amp for testing the finished box. Only thing I'd like to add really is some sort of caddy for organizing my pens/pencils/markers and various small hand tools.

Nice little setup you got going there.

I got the same Canadian Tire DMM, what do you think of it?

Does the job I guess - most of the time. Sometimes I have to bang it to get it to work right... I paid 25% of the original 55 dollar price tag. They were selling them off for some reason.

What I do like about it is that it's pretty clear to read, has all the functions I need out of it and more, and it didn't cost me less than 15 bucks.

What I really need to spend some money on is a good soldering iron. The one I use (weller 25 watt) goes through tips and I have little control over it.

Well it's this and the top of my rack unit until I can get ambulatory enough to square away my one car garage.





Gabriel said, "Someone somewhere must have come up with the corollary to Boyle's Law - That messes expand to fill the available space - haven't they?"
The reality of that statement wounds me to the core! Bless you G. Hoffman for; "The thing is that if there is a law then it needs to incorporate a feedback of some sort.

Each time I take longer to completely render any space unusable and it takes less time to tidy it up. Because each time it's tidied the stuff I need more of is made more easily accessible and so the layering of available things to use is better utilized." (sp)

I actually have copious shitloads of tools and amp and pedal parts but I've been able to get buy with these and a 1/4" drive deep socket set (SAE & MM)mounted to the little tray your credit card comes back on at a restaurant.

I love how the computer screen in the first pic's background shows the previous post in this thread... like in those time-travel stories when you realize you've ended at the beginning, doomed to repeat endlessly in a loop...

If your picture for whatever reason has content that is not appropriate for a work place, then please post a LINK, not an inline picture and please clearly mark NSFW (not safe for work).

Yes I know about that.. I will not start this discussion again. I'm fine either way and will never post anything NSFW ever. It's just I had to comment because that were some obvious melons.. cleverly masked in one of the pictures though.

IMHO, at most workplaces pix of any kind are NSFW, unless your boss thinks highly of you salivating over the insides of a Hiwatt or the sumptuous lines of a mint Gretsch White Falcon. Or, to put it another way, porn is porn, from a work point of view, so checking a picture-thread is not recommended, regardless of what unexpected treasures may pop up there.

I'm not really trying to discuss the ethics behind it all--just pointing out that it's the rules here, regardless of opinion :)

Just to be clear, I'm not talking about ethics either, just common sense and self-preservation. Text is unlikely to draw any unwanted attention. Big, splashy pictures are. Of course, YMMV.

Funny, it took me forever to notice the photos. I was too entranced by the beautiful anodized purple. ;)
