love the wooden cabs...very nice. 8)

Yeah, though it turns out that even if you can get the production time for the drawers down to 5 minutes or so, it still takes a freaking long time to make 53 of 'em!

Most of my components are still in plastic drawers, though it is nice to have a big wood drawer for transformers and chokes.  The rest of those drawers are other necessaries.  Shrink tube, IEC power connectors, a couple of drawers for tools I don't use quite as much, power strips, etc.

Thats some beautiful work Gabriel ! Sorry to hear about the flooding, I went through something similar a few years back. You really did a knock out job building all of that, beautiful work space.

Did you use your cnc machine for a lot of the work ?

You give me hope, Gabriel.

I have a similar mix of bigger wooden drawers and the usual plastic ones.

I'm still in the moving-in phase - we bought our house in 1997.

The CNC is out of commission as I rebuild it to be more reliable.  THAT project has been on hold since the basement flooded.  These were 99+% table saw work.  All the joints are dados, rabbets, and slots (with a healthy dose of glue and pneumatic finish nails).

Coolest thing about my space is the Betta fish ! he helps keep me mellow and calm, Wu Wei; and my vintage radios which all function. The 1963 Silvertone  is a guitar amp (danelectro honeytone circuit inside ), the 1984 Sony is my computer monitors two 4 ohm MIJ speakers pushed by a lepia amp and is bluetooth enabled and the other 1973 Realtone is my radio I listen to my Am programs like sprots open line on :)

you probably realised your placement mistake when you had to move the beer, brisance?

is that a cold backlight thing doing the hole lighting? how's the glare from that?

Hehe

there's a plexiglass with a bunch of LED strips attatched as the desk light, which I need to mount somewhere better and build a PWM dimmer for it (improvised light fixtures for the win right?) but there's a large fluorescent tube on the ceiling as well.

Already in progress ;P
