Portable painting case

As i wrote previously here, made myself a small portable painting case, to store paints and various tools. Sadly after some usage, everything kinda fell apart due to wood glue failing, or the chosen design just not fit for heavy usage. So i had 2 choices: either try to reinforce it with metal parts/bolts, or make a new one. In the end, decided to go the third route: bought one from Frontier Wargaming

Picked 4 racks to store paint bottles (droppers), and 2 boxes for tools/brushes. Also added the portable light and wet palette.

Portable light is kinda neat, but the wet palette sucks. I like the size, i like the lid, just don’t like the sponge they have in it, so probably will just replace it with something of my own.

Also there’s a carrying handle/strap, just in-case i decide to bring it to a local painting event.

Empty shelf will be used for storing painting handles i had previously 3d printed

New Year, New Goals

With new year comes new goals. This year i’m trying to get back to miniature painting and wargaming, so in relation to that, decided to tidy up my paints a bit, since they were scattered among 3 different boxes.

So with this in mind, and couple of plywood sheets in hand, this is the result

Some things in hindsight i would do differently, but as a prototype that will serve. Probably will add some kind of locking mechanism for lid and carrying belt/handle on top in the future. Also most likely will add some kind of dividers for paint, since they are too loose, and keep rotating to the sides when pulling them out.
