Dirk's Workbench and Musing Space

I'm trying but every time I need a color or a tool I spend an hour looking for it and in the end not finding it. It makes building a pain in the rump
 
This was my bench when I got back into the hobby 13 years ago. It hadn't changed much since then. Now that this has all been wiped out due to the recent sewer back up that I am still trying to recover from, I don't expect it will change much after I rebuild it. But here it is. In these photos the bench was an air hockey table, I was able to upgrade to a nicer mahogany desk that a friend of mine was getting rid of.

Unlike some of you with such grandiose work benches and spaces mine is at the back end of the finished part of my basement that I share with my family

Here are two of my B-17 kits that are in progress, my compressor, and in the small box are some Matchbox kits I picked up from EvilBay

Your workspace area is way bigger than mine. I'm pretty much confined to a computer table, and roughly a 11x15 room to build, display and store supplies. It's getting cramped for sure. I gotta figure out something.
