Very much so! More pictures would actually be awesome, like seeing the chemical end products or what your analysis lab looks like etc :)

Very nice, kavu! I'm jealous of the rotavap and your nice Flexaframe...what material is it made of? (My SS bars have corroded like nobody's business.... :( )

How is ventilation in your lab?

The lab frame is made from acid resistant stainless steel. It was made just few months back so it's still shiny. Lab is located in the apartments bathroom which also houses an exhaust vent. This has proved to provide reasonable ventilation for most experiments.

Nice:)

Do you have plans/drawings for the lab frame? Only my two vertical rods are simply forced into a piece of wood with some weights on top, which isn't the most stable of structures :P

Additionally, what's your hotplate sitting on? A heatproof mat of some kind?

Thanks.

I am Extremely Jealous of Mercedesbenzene's lab. Hopefully in a few years I will have that level of gear to work with.

See if this link works. After several hours I got my new chemical shelf finished and correctly sorted. Flammables and acids are stored elsewhere in a steel drawer. Best I can do ATM for a flammables cabinet.

Just got my lab on the way to being the way I want it Ill finish it next fall after I have built my garage to store my junk in. Now I can start to try and learn Chemistry. And as you already know it ain't gonna be easy for me.

It's not much but here is my fume hood just after it was finished
The hole in the back can be connected to a very powerful fan to deal with any dense vapors that the main fan can't pull away.

Yea Steve. I can see why it would be hard for you. How do you get anything done in that dump. :P

And, best of all, you got a space specially for chemistry.

Steve,

That is an awesome lab. It is far nicer looking than the "professional" one I work in. Our lab looks like a prison cell with grey walls and bare concrete floors. I bet your plumbing even works. Ours does somewhat. I have seen some beautiful commercial labs before, but most have now found that spending too much commercially is not practical when many companies come and go in a year, move constantly, or outsource their lab work.

I'm impressed both by the workmanship and the creativity exhibited by my colleagues in this thread.

Here is Rhosgobel, home of Radagast. Although it's far more ramshackle than my university workspace, it'll always be my home.

Oh god, my lab ceiling is just above head height, meaning I have to wear a gas mask/ respirator ALL the time, causing (now sorted) confusion with my neighbors. Agh, low ceilings are NOT recommended guys.

I love the look of it. Is that is a Chromatotron in the background on the bench? That brings back old memories. They are nice for certain scales and purifications. I always liked to push the material through a plug of silica first to remove most of the baseline and polar carp, then the plates would last a long time if cared for well. I might even have some old parts for them somewhere.
