    402476F2-EF18-4490-99C8-C7E1E9DDA008.jpeg Just wondering what you all have for a working area. Here is mine. My latest addition was plumbing in compressed air from the garage.

    Nice setup, I like the big flat screen right there so you can watch TV as you work!! You must be a Bachelor or is that a separate room just for you?? The reason I ask is that mine is just a bench with various tools, lighting etc (nothing fancy) but its in the basement. My wife would never go for that in the living area.

    I use a tall, rectangular bistro table and routinely do everything standing up. :facepalm:

    "workbench" :cool:

    It's a (one time) bedroom upstairs...
    ...and a full blown workshop outside - lathe, gas hearth, electric furnace, grinder, column drills etc; etc.

    Thanks it’s a separate room. Our house has 2 formal areas on the front side and we are not formal people and do not have “china cabinets” or any fancy dining arrangements so my son and I have taken over these rooms. The stacks of amps and cabs are behind me and he has his desk,recliner,gaming computer, guitars in his room. They are really one big room separated by a walkthrough wall. It’s really a very cool set up. And the TV was a trash pick that I repaired it’s a Samsung smart 65”.

    Here’s mine, it’s in the garage, where it should be! It’s an old Craftsman workbench from Sears. It’s got a lit magnifying glass, my solder station, a speaker for testing and boxes of tubes and other parts on it. Plus, it has a view of the garden.

    All that water running down the wall can’t be good around electricity.

    Mine is total chaos at the moment. With everything else going on and the weather is beautiful I’ve taken over the conservatory and the light in there is perfect for 55 year old eyes to do clean detailed work and have just built two Orange ORSTs from scratch, completed the resto of a 73 Matamp and am running a a JMP50 and 71 SB rebuild simultaneously. Once these done I have my Jimmy Page Hiwatt conversion (prompted by Shatki here) to tackle.
    I have parts in several boxes so scattered around so I can see what I have need for each project.
    Unfortunately it will all need to be tidied up.

    Here is my entire studio/work room. All the amps you see were built or modified by me.

    Left to right: 5F6A Clone built by me; 5F1 Clone built by me; Fender Mini-Twin; Fender Champion 600 Reissue modified by me to 5F1 spec; Trainwreck Express Clone built by me. Currently working on a 5E8A head to drive the unused 4x12 cab.
