  • Craft/cutting work-station [built]

    I posted a thread a little while ago with a design for a craft work-station type thing:



    And I finally got round to building it (more hassle than I thought it'd be + painting it took forever )



    I haven't put the shelves in the left unit yet and it's a little rough around the edges but I'm pretty pleased.

    Anyway, just thought I'd post a follow up to my original thread with the finished thing.

                    That is impressive.

                    When I looked at your sketch I had an idea it was google Sketchup. Good package.

                    What finish did you use on the unit.

                          Having seen the price of ready made units in this general style (almost enough to send any sane person into a dead faint ) I too would love to know an approx cost to make something like this.... I'm guessing the plastic baskets were the most expensive part?

                          This is just fab....I have storage envy ;-)

                              It's MDF primer with a few coats of acrylic on top.

                              I lucked out on the trays and got them in a clearance deal on ebay for about £1.20 each.

                              Costs:

                              MDF: £50
                              Paint: £20
                              Trays: £40

                              If I were to do it again I'd used laminated board and the trays would be more expensive so the cost of materials would be a fair bit more. But then it'd be a lot quicker to make because there'd be no painting
