Media - painting table
Made a few more modifications to my painting table this morning! I attached an extra piece of wood to the front of the top of the arch and moved the LED strips that had been pointing directly out at me—or were at the very back and not really contributing much—to underneath the new piece so they're pointing straight down towards what I'm painting. The entire arch was also moved forwards so I get more of the light, and it's now significantly more rigid as well. I hadn't taken any photos of it previously, but after I'd added the second level to store paints on at the end of last year, I also put a set of strip lights underneath that too to light up the bottom level a little more.

Doing some reinforcing on my painting table this morning. The original solution of Liquid Nails and some small actual nails wasn't holding up in places (I have no idea why I didn't just use screws to begin with, but anyway, it's definitely rock-solid now).

And done! Super-happy with how this came out.

Continuing with my theme of "productive New Years Eve" (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1642), this time I'm doing some woodworking! Making a second level for my painting table so I've got more room to put my paints, because I'm very much running out of room at this point.

The LED strip lights on my painting table can be cut and connected together with this connector that comes in the package, but the connection is really flaky and my latest additions started cutting out (I'd used the leftover bit from one of the previous packages). 😞 So I decided I'd just go and get another full five metre pack and use it all without chopping it. It's come out pretty nicely and everything's noticeably brighter, though one downside is that I ran out of room along the underside of the arch. Some of it's facing directly forwards which means I'm not quite getting the full benefit of ALL of it pointing down at what I'm painting but ah well. It's fine as long as I don't look directly at it. 😛

I decided I needed EVEN MOAR LIGHT for my painting table, so somewhat-dodgily attached another larger piece of wood to the top of the arch and bought yet another set of LED strip lighting to attach to it.
