    RE: have to share room with WIFE..........


    ORIGINAL: Charlie P.

    You'd be surprised what you can turn out with a 48'' x 24'' worksurface.* I built a Contender 60 on a desktop that size.* Treat yourself to an end-grain balsa building board.


    Now I have a dozen times that surface area - but nothing that large clear of clutter!

    I NEVER begrudge THE ADMIRAL workspace (32 year anniversary last month).* Half the house is hers, after all.* Currently she takes up about a 12' x 12' spot in the cellar*with a table, desk,two low*dressers and sewing*machine stand.* I have four work tables (one a massive oak 8' x 4' table from a railroad station), a table saw with wing (about 3' x 3'), two flat ''charging tables'' of 48'' x 24'' each, a free-standing radial arm saw with a table-top.* All*on maybe 28' x 14' of floorspace.* I think I made out like a bandit.
    Reads like quite the setup there. Very nice work tables. I pretty much let my wife have the house to do whatever she wants/likes. She is very thrifty and makes good use of space. She has one bedroom setup for crafts but it is not really large enough. She works outside gardening a lot so she is very content with her surroundings.

    I have a 3 bay shop so I can do whatever I want with it. I do house my tractor, lawn mowers, welders, building supplies, and all sorts of other supplies there. I basically have one bay for RC planes and plenty of workbench space. I have enough workbench space to work on several planes at once, but I keep the space tied up and it is a bit tight in there right now.

    Although I have too many planes on my workbenches that don't need work (just storing), it makes it difficult because I don't have any room to keep the planes that I don't work on. I think that means a shop extension coming on One cannot buy any new planes to start working on without any area to work on them.

    Make sure you don't have a TV in the work room. At least one of you will have to leave the room to watch tv and won't have TV Fights on what channel to watch. It is impossible for me and my wife to agree to watch the same TV show.

    RE: have to share room with WIFE..........

    Once she understands the meaning of DUST and STINK she may find herself another room. When I was a kid building U-controls {1/2A} I build on a board on my lap in the living room. Today just building a 60 size plane I couldn't get by on a 4 foot table. Then again, in a pinch I think I could build in a closet!

    RE: have to share room with WIFE..........

    When I was separated I had a one room efficiency apartment. I built and repaired on a small 18x24 TV table. I had to sit on the floor. The bandsaw was in a corner in the kitchen, and I sat on the floor to use it. I sure had fun building kits. The only downside was when I tried to use a table sander. Balsa all over my pillow, sheets, etc.

    When I was single I turned my den into a huge shop. When my future wife saw it I joked that she wasn't allowed in there. She believed me until I caught on months later.

    RE: have to share room with WIFE..........

    Make it happen,,, thats what you do.. I started out on a 30 x 48 inch desk with a rubber desk top. 40 years later my shop consumes my whole basement.. as for the little lady,,, try not to piss her off. just try to repel her. there are many easy ways to do it. like some one else said sanding balsa should work. but I have an alternate plan that will work every time. Just crack open some polyester resin and catylist or go find yourself a can of dope for fuel proofing. Or just about any kind of model paint and thinner. the fuems will drive her out or maybe even put her to sleep. either way you can have your way. with your building and or with her if you please.

    These guys sure talk big with a keyboard in hand*while little lady is*in the kitchen is probably making*you an antifreeze burger.* Have fun as you sit there typing insulting messages about them to your buddies.**Enjoy life*when the glaucoma sets in, the balsa glue*has*worn*out and the monokote won't stay ironed on any longer wondering why your last trimester of life is so lonely.**When that little lady has found her a real man that knows the priorities of buidling a long term relationship and*placing those priorities in order,*you'll be missing that special*someone to hold hands with and rock on the porch with*as the two of you*reminence the good old days.

    For the guy with one room neediing to share with the spouse, it's called time management.* When she's in there, you watch tv, mow the yard, get on RCU and window shop, change the car oil.**While she's occupying that room, make*her a nice cup of tea, take her a little snack, put a flower on her table.* I bet the next time you want to go flying, she'll help load the SUV!**When her favorite reality tv is on and the room is empty, the room is yours.* When the lights go out, you'll have one more day with the only thing in llife that matters.

    I have the same kind of wife. She does most of the covering for me and when we are out shopping she always ask if I need something from the hobby store. If your wife is not that kind, then when you both are sharing the room, keep asking her to hold something, or, can you put this little screw in the slot, my hands are to large. pretty soon when you are in the room she is nowhere to be found.

    I am sure you would be the first to drop your keys!! But, truly only in your dreams.......guess this is why you came up with the idea.

    a real space saver is build your self a fold down table, for when your doing larger projects and need some extra space my folder is aprox 2.5x5 I used plywood that has a 1x2 wood border around the edge, so small screws don't roll off and it keeps it fairly flat,the edge against the wall is hinged so when not in use which for me is never it can be folded to the wall when the legs are pulled off to allow for more space
