I felt like sharing my new Lego Workspace i finally finished building.
Instead of buying something and trying to adapt it to my awkward shaped appartment and growing Lego collection i decided to design and build something myself (which is what i end up doing with everything in my appartment)

Anyway here is the result: a long table (1.6m) with equally long drawers fielding a battery of almost 50 IKEA 'Glis' sorting boxes. The building area itself features a rotating tunrtable made from clear plexiglass and an oversized horizontal ball bearing mechanism. The orange painting is for the sheer fun of it :]


Pictures are terrible because its incredibly dark and been raining for almost 2 months straight.

    Paul J'ai eu la chance de les avoir en solde a 2euros piece ... mais le prix de base est de 4 euros. Excessivement abordable comparé aux alternatives des magasins de bricolage qui dépassent rapidement les 10 euros.

    Guss De Blöd Merci ;) pour ce qui est du sorting ... je suis presque a bout de ma dernière boite pas triée.. ca fait depuis 1996 que je n'avais pas eu toute mes briques triées!!

    Ironsniper Trust me i been there ;)

    ƒernald I can assure you that wasn't the goal of this post ;)

    .Tromas Thaks ... someday ill post my computer setup... its about double the spacegeekyness of this :D

    brickmack I like when it rains tbh cuz it cleans this polluted city a but ... but i would love to have the feeling that it is summertime -even for a few minutes!

    Classy, but where did you get the ball-bearing turn table.

    Meme mon bureau a LEGO n´est pas aussi cool... Jalousie!

  8. Pierre E Fieschi 54 months ago | reply

    Shamisenfred C est vrai ce mensonge? ^^ Je me demande d'ailleurs a quoi peut resembler ton bureau? J'ai l'image en tete d'un enorme arc de cercle bardé de tirroirs avec un tube d'aspiro suspendu au plafond ... mais peut etre que c'est seulement pour les mecs qui font les gros modèles du miniland?

    buriedbybricks The ball bearing turntable was found at a hardware store for about 15$

    Very clean and organized. I'm going to have to start taking some notes.

    That turntable is a damn good idea. Love the drawers as well.

    Is there anyway to see a pic of the complete desk? I dig the drawers but can't make them out too well. Thanks if you do.

    Even your workspace is cool and futuristic! I'm so envious!

    i love the long drawers but where do your knees go when you build?

  16. M Exsurgent 41 months ago | reply

    Probably stands, I'm not even in the same building league as Pierre but I'm always up and looking for pieces so a chair would be useless for me

  17. Pierre E Fieschi 41 months ago | reply

    Marc Exactly, i never seat when building because i'm always looking for stuff.
    The new version of this i'm designing now is actually even higher. This one was a bit low and after entire weekends building on it , my back was hurting ;) Another thing i'm gonna implement in the new version is a seperate place for the model being assembled and all the pre-assembling-sorting-tablescraping :D

    hmm, standing you say...not sure if my legs could take that... i stand all day at work, if i'm not running up and down stairs a thousand times or climbing ladders or humping material back and forth. Nah, when i get home, i wanna good sit. But i could see a nice, well-lubed chair on castors and some long drawered cabinets around to the sides. i have some of mine in wheeled carts so i can pull the bulk pieces around where i need them.

    Shane The habbit of standing while doing stuff comes from painting I guess. When studying architecture I was also standing for building models, cutting and gluing stuff together. I found I had a better grip (grasp??) on my tools ;) Also i sit all day at work (which sucks) :p

    You are phenomenal! (what is that art desk/drawer? where did you get it? Did you build this?)
