Portable Workspace

I gave up the workbench with a view due to spousal eminent domain proceedings, and used the opportunity to clean up all the junk that had accumulated over the years on the supply tablet, and in various boxes.

Here is my new portable work space.

The bottom box is attached to a handle with wheels, and the top box mounts to the cover of the bottom box. This makes for very compact storage when I'm not actively working on a project.

Opened up, the various trays and boxes reveal tools and supplies that I use regularly with room to spare. All other supplies, kits, and scenery materials continue to be stored around the train room. I'm planning to use the tray for holding the project(s) I'm working on, while tools and supplies will need to be packed away at the end of a work session.
Setting up the workspace on the dining table and packing everything away just take a couple minutes each, so while it's not quite as convenient any more as having everything on the work table ready to go, the impact should be minor.

I need to figure out whether I still need a work lamp, and if so, how to attach it in a way that folds away to keep the whole thing portable.
