My only regret in my studio is that my sink is one side of my 40 ft
studio, and my soldering bench is on the other end. I wished I had
put ina small sink at my soldering bench for it would have saved me
a daily trip to replace my water bowls. I’ve learned to keep clean
water in bottles at my soldering station to compensate for that.
My first sink was the cheap utility sink and I managed to punch a
hole in it when my 25 lb tumbler crashed into it. For 9 months, I
had a bucket under the sink to catch the water. When it was time to
properly finish the workspace, I put in a large stainless steel sink
with a sprayer into a custom-made countertop with shelves. I
deliberately planned it so that my tumblers were next to the sink,
and my ultrasonic cleaner sothat there was very little wasted
movement or hauling of heavy barrels. My old studio was so poorly
laid out, that I would have to haul my big heavy barrel across two
rooms, up a flight of stairs, and into the kitchen. I don’t miss
those days anymroe. Plus the old studio did nothave heat, enough
outlets, one room had no working lights. I shudder to think how many
times my apt would up gone up in flames from the very old wiring and
poor maintainence (my landlord was a slumlord).
Joy, comfortably settled in her customized studio of 10 years.
