Today I am still working on the electric and lights.
Not allowed to install any form of permanent wiring but can get creative with extension cords.
Last week, Baserock Love from this forum put up the lights as I assisted. He is way taller than me. Anyway, the objective was to just get them up and that he did. Under my direction, get 'em up.
I wish I had taken a photo. Eight 4' LED strips, that's 8 cords hanging plus another bunch of cords plugging together, plus the ropes and chains they are hanging from plus additional 8 hanging ropes to help tie back some of the cords plus a bunch of extension cords with outlets on them. It was comical looking.
So yesterday and today, I spent my usual 4 to 5 hours at the shop making it all look neat, or as neat as possible. The lights are now higher and tied higher to the rafters. Broken into 3 sections on switches. This could not have been possible without his help. The additional hanging ropes he put up, helped hold the wires in place so that I could secure them properly, or as proper as it can get. Thanks again to Collin. Without his help, I wouldn't have been able to do this
Hopefully, tomorrow, I will be able to finish up the rest of it and finish the actual job when the table saw, band saw and planer show up. In the mean time, I will begin making some form of control panel to allow me to switch certain individual tools onto the main 20 amp outlet or my small
Honda 2K generator by just flipping a switch.
No real woodworking yet. I dont count the saw horses and the Tony B shop stool.
And I'm still spending money like I am earning it. My original plan was to buy almost everything 'used'. That didn't happen. So far, everything is new except for the reconditioned router which is essentially new.
If I remember, tomorrow I will take pics of the lighting and the shelf.
