Paint Station

I already us a paint station from HobbyZone at home, now when I was looking for one to replace the one I built myself for my lunch break paintings in my office, I went for another one from HobbyZone, this time the medium sized one; the large one would not have fit in the file cabinet in my office.

As with the first, I did not only glue it, I also inserted some nails for added stability. Underneath, I again glued felt pads. I used my trusty Lego angle to help in the construction.

I did drill holes first, but I still got some cracking of the MDF when inserting the nails.

I now filled the cracks with PVA glue, which does not hide the cracks, but should prevent further cracking and keep the stability of the corners.

After the first few days, I heard an ominous creaking sometimes when I moved the fully loaded station - which made me doubt the power of the glue...

So I decided to add some nails to strenghten the integrity of the station. To prevent the MDF from splintering when hammering in the nails, I first drilled holes with a slighlty smaller diameter than the nail.

Now there are no more ominous sounds no more :-)

Paint Station

The paint station I am currently using I build myself some time ago. It includes a build in wet palette, two cup holders (one for non-metallic, one for metallic) and is A4 size.

It served me well so far, but when moving it around, the paints and brushes always were seperate.

This I wanted to change.

After some Googleing I got myself a new paint station from HobbyZone, which arrived today and was quickly assembled.

I made two slight modifications to it, one was to glue felt pads underneath, the other was to drill two small holes which hold paper clips (which I use to un-clog dropper bottles) which fell through all the stock holes.

Ready for action.
