Default Quick and Easy Modelling Shelf

Hey everyone, i thought i'd post a pic plus dimensions of the shelf I made recently for my W40k models. I wanted something I could move around and had enough space to hold a few models at a time as I tend to set up an assembly line. So, here it is.

The Dimensions


The finished product



I used screws and glue to hold it together. When screwing the wood(get out of the gutter) I pre-drilled holes a bit smaller than the width and length of the screws as to reduce the risk of splitting the wood when putting them in.
For the screws in the bottom I drilled a very short hole,wider than the head of the screw and then pre-drilled through that too so the head doesn't stick out. Then screwed it together.

Let me know if you want more pics or info. Very basic and quick. Hope its useful to you

That is a pretty nice shelf. just as good if not better then the cardboard one you can get from GW.

Do not fear the Hive Mind for it is good and we are all together. . .Or you will be! *Chomp*

Nice job, that's a pretty sound paint station.

I could really use one of these so i don't have to pack away my paints/palette/water/bitz every time i've finished working.

If i get some free time, i might have a crack at making one.

My dad made a little painting shelf for me a few years ago, more like the GW one but sturdier.

Very useful but I, for some odd reason, seem to find it more comfortable to paint/convert while lying on the floor of the room... haha

I like it, but I think that perhaps it could have been made from thinner wood, what width is that wood you used?
