Ok thanks, I mixed up the height and width, do you think I should change them to what you specified or leave the fume hood as it is?

If you are using a standard window your width would conform to the window. If not, use whatever dimensions you want.

A little over a year after starting my home lab, I wanted to show how my lab has evolved. I went from having a few simple chemicals and pieces of glassware to a furnished lab space.

I'm sure you can tell whats new here.
The furniture is primarily made from a modified toy kitchen. It is equipt with an outlet, vacuum pump, DC power supply, eventually plumbing and the large cabinets lock for chemical storage.


Thank you all for your ideas and knowledge, I have learned a lot and come a long way

Sorry but your lab looks fake !

I see no burns or stains on the walls or floor, only one stain on your work surface,
your glassware is sparkling and your stand and clamps are shiny :D

other than that ... very nice :cool:

Ah you have discovered my plan!

That is only the clean glassware you are seeing, the rest is sitting dirty in a bucket on my shelf. I use those cabinets as a dry bench, and my wet bench has a glass top, although after a few years in service even that is pretty beat up :p

Short tour


Ask if you would like to see more pics of glassware/setup or have any advice.

If I may give my advice, I suggest against directly heating a pyrex measuring cup on a hotplate like that. They are not made of borosilicate glass, only tempered glass which can resist a lot of heat but only when it is distributed equally across the glass. This is why they say not for lab use. Get a crystalizing dish for your water and oil baths.
Nice desiccator by the way.

I recommend a metal heating pot, not as pretty, but a lot safer.

Definitely safer, although some hotplates dont cope well with metal touching the heating plate. It creates hotspots that can overload the coils on the inside.

Well slowly making my lab look more respectable and less like a meth lab! Just need an FTIR to really round out the aesthetics!

and some new stuff arrived!

And better lab safety in a safe

I think the fourth photo is showing the inside of the safe. Looks like toxic/poisonous chemicals.

Yup and some energetics. I have friends over and on a side topic to another friend we where talking about people doing idiotic things.

Needles to say it encouraged me to put the harmless looking but yet massively deadly or dangerous into a lockable safe. Plus side if a thief ever stole it and tried to cut into it I will be very happy with end resualt, so another massive win!

Better safety and gene pool chlorinater all in one.

The rack worked so well going to make more, idea is one for each size of flask, atm it will just be 3 with mixed sizes, next too is a condenser rack as I now have a good assortment
