Hmmmm, that may work!
The fold down is a good idea.

This is an a work station I built from a old TV cabinet one of my tenants abandoned.Note the fold down hinge.

This is long gone.You could easily do something similar with Kitchen cabinets or some of the storage cabinets from Home Depot or one of the other outlets.Out of site out of mind. :D
This is excellent! I know right where I can fit something like this. Thanks for the pics!!

This thread becomes all the more important with the new led pieces we received from KS5 now usable in the lantern posts. I was able to fix the one post I had issues with following the posted repair.
(And man, every time I see bits of Oldent’s craft area...makes me want to banish a car to the driveway and install a shop area in the garage).

Easy solve: Build a narrow ledge type bench. If you really are short, use thick (2"or better) wood stock and have it fold down on heavy (heavy!) legs. Then just drive the car out when you need to work... spouses are more comfortable with this than exiling a car.......

I received the LED Lantern Posts set and I can't get a single one of these lights to connect to the posts. Worse, trying to push the little pins in has pushed the electrical piece back on a couple and fully recessed one of them so it's totally non-useable.

I'm trying to be as careful as I can...

Anyone else having the same problem?
There is no change ! No way to get something working correctly.
The factory doesn't change at all the product fabrication.
Well, the good news are my brother is going to repare it for me.
I found the tutorial posted by a fan here, so he's going to follow it.
I recommend it for every Customer who will have this problem.
DF Customer service was very nice with me and the company is very sorry about this issue.

Not if I should be impressed or disturbed!

That's a sweet setup.
I don't see close-up so good myself these days and need reading glasses so liking the massive magnifying lens :)

Two jars of hand bones and another jar of finger bones ........

OK so I am mostly impressed :)
I use the bones for bridges and other parts. I have not been able to find them this year. Still early. ;)

You can use hot water to shape them.
