So the bulk of my hobby room was done by the end of June. But putting that room together isn’t the only thing I did before summer went into overdrive and drove me out of my hobby room for a good two months. I also bought hardware! This article doubles as a review of Lidl’s rotational multi-tool and their service. Spoiler: it’s not great…Read more “Tool Troubles (June 2018, part 1)”
I had wanted to start building my vertical storage extension, but the leftover pre-laminated OSB panels I had were no good for this project as I didn’t have the ability to saw them into the right sizes on my own, and many would’ve been too small to begin with, so after I finished drawing up my plans, I made another panel cut layout image so I’d know for sure what I’d need — then bought everything I’d need to get started with the building process.

Everything I’d initially designed, I’d finally built. And all was, well… not perfect. My storage was great for large materials, but I had a lot of small tools and materials that I needed to store, and I wanted to come up with a better solution for that.

It’s just something that I do, usually without looking. Now, I could throw that stuff away. But instead, starting now, I’m going to take photos of it and call it Accidental Art.

Making the main desk was easy! It genuinely was. It was basically just a larger version of the storage space I’d already built. It did, however, take me over a month to put together because of the amount of work involved. Read more “How we got here (May 2018, part 1)”
I wanted to work on my main desk, but I did something else instead. I was still happy with my corner ‘box’ idea, but the walls in this room are viscious. I already made myself bleed several times just applying the pipe insulation. I couldn’t just put materials in that box and have them lean against that wall. It might damage my materials. I figured it would be better to solve that issue first.
