Last but not least, if you are on a tight budget, then consider a bag of gourmet coffee. Not just any brand, but the good stuff. Go on-line and search out key word terms like "organic, fair trade coffee" or "gourmet organic coffee." You can guarantee the more certifications the better the coffee, at least in most cases. Then purchase a bag with the roast level of his preference. Or if you aren't sure, then get a bag of each roast level and let him choose which one he likes best.
Acrylic paints are something that I have not gotten into and do not know much about. The advantage is that you do not have to use special thinners. Some modelers use Windex to thin. My experience is mainly with enamels. I have a friend that uses finger nail polish thinned with lacquer thinner on his cars, as he likes the range of colors and fine grain of the metallic/metal flake ones.
I started looking around at artists taborets and rolling work tables and found them too expensive to be practical. It seems if something is labelled as art studio furniture or art materials it automatically comes with a pretty hefty markup and price tag. Even basic rolling shelves and carts from the big discount art stores online were in the neighborhood of $200 with several above $400. I considered buying lumber and building some shelves from scratch, but then it occurred to me to look around at the office supply stores and in the home furnishings departments of stores like Walmart and Target. I considered everything from rolling computer desks to kitchen carts and tool boxes. I checked Lowe's and Home Depot and even Harbor Freight and found there are numerous items marketed for home use or DIY workshops ready made that would function well in an art studio.
While this is a bench designed for light to moderate loads, you might consider replacing the worksurface's fiberboards with lengths of 1½ X4 inch lumber, suitably drilled holes for the plastic dogging clamp inserts. If you are comfortable with a power planer or router, make a suitable undercut to clear the hand cranks and use 1 ½ X 6 inch planks for the work surfaces. That will give you a wider working surface when the two panels are cranked to the max.
How about a new way to look at cleaning your motorcycle? I'm not going to tell you to make a list of cleaners and polishers as long as your arm. Tell you to go get them and swear to their ability to transform your scooter into the once proud machine that rolled off the line 30 years ago. Let's face it there's too many to list and talk intelligently about. My experience is most riders want a routine that works and they also want to know what they do wrong in the process so they don't get the cleaning DEMON ATTITUDE! I know it isn't easy but I think I can help.
Three possibilities come to mind. One is the old standby balsa wood. Balsa is fairly cheap and easy to work with. Several glues can be used with balsa: Elmer's, wood glue, super glue and even an adhesive that is used it wooden model construction. Balsa can be cut with an Exacta knife, or razor blade using a straight edge for straight lines. Sheet plastic is the second material.
