Build your own hobby-rack

For several years I was living in small apartments with limited
space and I started thinking of how to solve this problem and
also to be able to continuing my hobby.
I have been a creative person for all my life and as an adult
I have been working with interiordesign and woodworking
since 1994. My design of my hobby-rack is kind of luxurios
using exclusive materials but this can be exchanged easily
for MDF, chipboard or plywood.
I originally made a sketch by hand of how to build this hobbyrack
but when making the report I used MS Windows-paint to make 
simple parasolids and then writing down the measurements.
The whole idea with the design is to store all my paint and
brushes and also have a "secluded" place for glueing.
The squareshaped hole in the middle is used for fitting
various holders to fixate miniatures when painting or
converting. I will write about these holders and how to
manufacture these in my next report.
The hole rack is glued with PVA and also mounted using
screws for wood (TFX - screw with flat top).
The finished rack is polished and also fitted with linseed
in three layers. The weight of this rack is estimated to be
6-8 kilos. All the measurements in milimeter.
Feel free to ask anything how to build this hobby-rack.
If anyone outthere will build this using my design and
"drawings" it would be nice if you send me an e-mail
with a picture.Good luck!

  1. A real masterpiece, i am astonished!
    i don't need it now but i'll save it for the future because it's really genial!
    thanks for sharing!

    1. Thankyou Luca.I am so happy that you can use my ideas in the future.Please contact me if you need any kind of advice working with wood or interior.

  2. Quite nice - I have always been interested in woodworking, but I sort of lack the essential tools. My current storage utility is an old toolbox I looted. It is ugly plastic but has all the space I need. I have the materials to build a small table now, hoping to complete it someday.

    1. Thankyou András.Working with plastic is also nice.When I work professionally I use primary wood but also plastic, glas and metal.Good luck with your table.What kind of wood do you choose for this project?

    2. The table itself is an old wooden board I cleaned, sanded, stained and varnished. It was used to make dough. The legs of the table are pine. Nothing too fancy, just something to work on.

  3. I am really impressed by this fantastic job, congrats!

    1. Thankyou Phil. At home I have made a lot of my own furniture.It is a lot more "individuality and soul" when you have the time to make it yourself.Once you try it you find out that it is not so hard make things for your home.

  4. What a beautiful piece of work, real skill Sir.

    1. Thankyou Michael. Wood is a wonderful material eventhough MDF and chipboard is more ecofriendly.
