    Stores easy

    Not a dumb question. My setup stores nicely in a small closet. My table folds up and the build boards can just lean up against the wall in a closet. I got a metal shelf from work to store the magnets on and it works perfectly.

    I brought my Warhammer 40k minis camping once. Amy and I had an epic battle of Space Marines vs. Eldar in the woods near Cle Elum. Key word. Once.

    How did you attach the steal to the wood nhk? I just got my steal and board today... need some ideas. Thinking epoxy might make it not come out flat?

    You dont need to fasten the steel board down. It will stay put with just its own weight! Mine never slips or moves. If you had to fasten it down for some reason, I would just use a couple of clamps. That way you can remove it when needed. You want your build area as versatile and adaptable as possible as you never know what is next. I actually have a hollow core door on top of a solid wood Uline industrial table as I wanted a large building area that was super flat. I really need a solid core door, but for now the hollow is working good.

    Inspiration

    Thanks for the inspiration. I just finished my Magnetic Building Board, Still waiting on my jigs. I used galvanized steel (don't want the rust.) it is 20 Gauge, and was cheap. 65 inch x 35 inch I found at a home improvement shop here in Europe. for, $30 (after conversion) I am now going to use my Ikea Magnetic board for a place to hold my Jigs.

    Here is a picture.

    Nice work station! I like the cutting side too, I wish I had the space to do that, I also like the beer glass, makes me thirsty!

    Heres a pic of something you cant do with pins. Im applying verticle and horizontal force to make a perfectly square aileron with magnetic verticle presses, fixtures, and scrap wood. Got to love the magnetic system for perfectection.
