Thought I would give it a test run today. The height of the bench is perfect for me - no more bent back, this is really good.   Unfortunately it feels very strange not working on a bergeon work mat,

As soon as you posted this, I remembered reading about this.....   http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/interview-meet-dan-spitz-anthrax-guitarist-turned-master-watchmaker

The end of a busy weekend. Painted, units constructed and lights fitted. These three are plenty bright enough. Three more will go on the other side of the workshop. Sent from my iPhone using T

Mark, good luck on your new shop completion. Look forward to seeing your new shop in action

 

I may have a similar need coming in the near future. I was thinking of setting up a large trailer home with workbenches and cabinets next to our home. Its insulated and comes with heat and air conditioning. 

Its just a glint in my eye right now so we'll see what happens.

Yes - going for white silk.

 

I put the lighting up and have changed my mind now about the strip lighting. Very flickery and noisy. The flickering will cause migraines - and the noise will drive me nuts. I just took it down for painting and will not be putting it back up.

 

Got some kitchen units for the base which I will sit on house bricks to bring them up to height. Plywood for the worktops which I will laminate. Lots of work to do, but i'm fired up.

It's great to hear that you are nearing completion Mark. Having just fitted LED lights in my kitchen, I decided to purchased an LED lamp from Cousins; it will be here on Monday and I'll let you know what I think of it.

Just put loads of GU-10 LED's in my kitchen this week. They are brilliant.

 

 

Just finished the second coat - going to have to do one half first because of all the stuff. Keeps threatening to rain so I can't put it outside.

Indeed. Found some low energy bulbs online with equivalent of 170w each 35w actual and a daylight tone. Will order 6 of them. Hopeful that will be enough light for the room (aside from the bench lights of course)
