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.

Mood: Got a new hotplate stirrer

[*] posted on 10-3-2019 at 21:56



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.
