Model making: Here's what I've been making. Share yours

I did a bit more photo manipulation and:

Here’s a table I made:


wonderful looking table. Finish work on wood and hiding how things are attached has eluded me. My table efforts are either IKEA or work bench type things.

Oooh, a recess so your dice don’t go rolling off, very nice.


@FITorion: I happen to quite like the so called “work bench aesthetics”.

@Faulx: Stole the idea from geekchic. (sadly, they’re out of business).
