I think the cheapest and ideal workbench you could have for all those modelling creation's, yes, it's an old dressing table.
But then i found something else that is really usefull, those little plastic boxes that you see in the likes of "The Range" and "Hobby Craft" 12 for 9 quid, well i think someone must have measured them...because
They fit perfectly
As if that's not enough room i treated myself to one of these i have always wanted one but the antique ones go for silly money. Highly recommended. these are well made and totally brilliant. completely lockable and lined with felt.
I have nothing in association with this company but have bought various items from them in the past and have found them very good.
