Man Cave Update

The other day my managed to score two more sets of shelves and a table for my man cave.  Great news, except it would mean I’d have to get back to cleaning it up to make room for them all.

Thankfully most of the dirty work has already been done, now it’s more of sorting stuff out and making some tough decisions on stuff that has been hanging around in boxes for years.


Here’s the two tables in painting mode (left) and gaming mode (right).  In gaming mode they measure 4x5.5 feet which should be perfect for anything I play.  If I ever feel the need to go 6x8 I can easily make up some chipboard tops.  The grey table is about 4cm shorter than the white table but I can sort that out by making some risers for the legs.

The TV still works, I was afraid that it wouldn’t after getting shifted around so much.  While I was unpacking I noticed the Dreamcast and just couldn’t resist.  Luckily there’s a couple comfy lounge chairs to go back in here.  Anyone up for a game, I’ve got bags on Taki.


And if I ever get tired of the Dreamcast, XBox, Playstation (1&2), N64 and the Saturn then I have this baby...


Sort of, the PC in it died years ago and the sound has never been wired up.  One day though.

And now for the pièce de résistance:


This used to hang front and centre in my lounge room, sadly it’s not even allowed in the house anymore.

There’s still a bit more work to do in sorting out some boxes and I’m hopeful that I’ll get it done this weekend.  Now if the ruddy electrician would just hook up the power then I can start moving my painting table out there.


  1. Ah a man cave... I'd settle for a man closet at my house! LOL! Looks like you're getting a great cave though!
