    While looking through the contest contestant's submissions I came across this set of pics. I just liked the way the bench was cleared off. :thumb:

    Believe me, I have no room to talk. Even with hundreds if not thousands of miles seperating us and that fact that we have not met personally it's interesting to see that that many a technique are so common among modelers.:D

    Well, I try not to get too many layers of things on my workbench underneith the project I'm working on. Seems like everytime I need a tool or a part, that's where it is.:D :D

    A clean bench is a either a sign of a brand new bench or someone with a warped mind that spends too much time organizing and not enough time having fun.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    I have just enough space for what I need to work on. Besides since all the paint bottles are the same size they can act as a shelf.

    I cleaned the workbench last night. I changed the newspaper I was using as a cover. :D
