The biggest problem I need to solve is power & light. Right now the power is going to the shop through one 100í extension cord from the crawl space in my house. Every time I turn on the lathe, drill press or branch grinder, the lights flicker. I have a bunch of conduit and direct-bury romex. I just need to rent a trencher to dig a trench, but to do that I need a truck to get the trencher here. So Iíve been dragging my feet on that a little bit. Soon.
Then Iíll be able to wire up better light. It looks pretty bad in the photos, but I have four LED spotlights, and if I turn them all on the space Iím working in itís pretty adequate. Not ideal, but Iíll improve it.
The next step is to put in some kind of heat. Iím planning a wood burning stove made from a 55 gallon drum on its side. Iíll probably take out the finishing station in the back there, and put the stove in its place. Then Iíll move the finishing station out front into the garage area and maybe build a semi-enclosed space for it.
