    Hey Seeker,

    Your cat's thinking....There goes the damage deposit!

    What's really cool about my place is that after I move, this place will be entirely renovated. So I could do what ever I want with it for now.

    I use my garage for painting, dremeling, sanding, etc.
    and my room for everything else.
    Both are quite messy

    Most of my spray-painting and Dremel work is done in the garage. But I always end up tracking spots (paint, grease, putty, etc) back onto the carpet, because I forgot something in the house.

    For brush paint work, I do it at my computer (where I can see the Reference CD). There are all kinds of spots there.

    I try to 'schedule' my sewing for various projects, and knock them all out in one weekend. I don't have a dedicated area for this, so I have to use the dining room table. When I'm done, I have to pack everything back up in storage.

    Boy, this is an interesting question1 Lessee... Mostly I try to confine my work to the garage/shop. However, that almost never happens. Here is my short list: Back yard (only in the winter), kitchen counter (wife's gonna kill me one of these days), family room floor(my stains can be blamed on the kids!), laundry room, in the car(don't ask), Unviersal Studios Florida costuming department (they have the best sewing machines!).

    I do all priming/base painting in the garage, and then I do detailing and touch-ups in my room at my desk. We don't have a sewing machine (well...we do, but its from 1964), so I pack up my stuff and drive to my buddy's house (who has a great machine). I try to store everything in those huge tupperware containers, but right now, my helmet, gauntlets, and jet pack are scattered about my room. I'm busy with college now, so I haven't been able to mess with them much, but as soon as Fall break gets here, I plan on getting some stuff done.

    Gotta love also the ULTIMATE MASKING SOLUTION...MUSTARD!!! (It's good, ask Trooper TK409 about it), which I did also, with great results, as well as you don't touch it while in drying process.

    Anyways, you've beat me with the box (i.e. (tip) computer currently using ) Am I correct? Still, you're winning with the smaller working space available.

    I learned the tip from TK-409 on his macro-binocular tutorial. You use the mustard to mask off areas, let it dry paint over the mustard then wash off mustard. It does react (on a chemical level) with some paints and causes a slight (very slight) discoloration.

    WHEWHOO!!! My work space is about to get a major upgrade. Right now I am stuffed in my garage with 2 cars which leaves me virtually no room at all. Just yesterday I got tenative approval from the HOA to build a 10'X14'X8' shop in my back yard. While that may seem small (my backyard is only 40' X 60') it will be a huge improvement for me!!

    The below statement is absolutely CORRECT, with the only difference that I used (the mustard) for the back of the helmet. It was painted already, but the back of the helmet was the same color as the dome and cheeks, but the paintjob that had (and still have) is superb. Like lordfett said, is really good and creates a chemical reaction, not sure for the texture or the color that looks like discoloration and graduates accordingly....somehow.

    Thought I'd bring this old monster back up to see what some of our newer members use for their areas.

    I was just about to look for this thread...

    I'm in the process of redoing my garage. Whoever had the house before, did not put any electrical outlets near the workbench.

    I plan to install a new, laminated workbench, more shelves and a paint cabinet.

    I'm dropping a total of eight 110 outlets and one 220, for the stove (vacuforming). Almost done with the drywalling.

    I'll put up progress pictures when I finish.
