As I wrote in the previous article about my home office; our house isn’t huge, so I had to make the most of the office/man cave that I have. The electronics corner is pretty small, and a couple of things about it was annoying. Like not having my instruments, like the oscilloscope and power supply, easily available. So I decided I needed to fix that!
As you can see there wasn’t a lot of space for my instruments, actually; there was not space. But I am using a shelf rail system which makes it pretty easy to adjust the shelves. So I decided to add a deep shelf, in eye height, for my instruments.
Bought a wooden shelf and cut it to size. And pulled up two power cables in a cable duct.
To get things off the desk I also added a small shelf on the wall in front of me. Any little bit helps.
Next I needed more lights and a better soldering iron, always wanted one of those Weller soldering stations :)
I had an old IKEA shelf and a speaker stand lying around, so I made a tiny table. Every bit of work surface helps :) All my most used tools and cables are withing an arms reach. The hot air gun is plugged in and ready to go.
By putting the soldering stating also on the new shelf I was able to free up even more work surface. All in all very pleased with the result :) It is still small, but it works, and it forces me to clean up after myself when I’m done with something.
A organized part storage is also an important part of any work shop.
And some fancy lights to top it all off :)
Do you have any smart solutions in your workshop/lab? I’d love to see it:)
