I'm writing this article to share with you some photos of my new home lab i built on my own. It is a lab designed on my needs and on my lab equipment i already own. It had to be small to feat in a door space and at the top of a desk. On the other hand it had to be big enough to include all of my stuff. That was a challenge and i had to take advantage of any available space. In order to make it more compact and safe i also included an electrical installation.
First i designed a 3D Cad model.
After i checked that everything is correct i ordered the wood pieces which finally was made out of 16mm Melamine.
I firtstly assembled it on the floor to make things easier.
I placed it on the desk top
and i started making the electrical installation.
Finally it looks like this:
As you can see on the right photo in order to take advantage of the free space on the left of the red drawer i designed a vertical drawer that can be push-pulled and hang hand tools.
