I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

How do you like your lighting choice so far?

I'm at that stage of upgrading pitiful lighting in my shop and would love to know how you like those.

Beatific shop FYI...I love it.

Rob,

The LED lights are BRIGHT! Each bar is 4,000 lumens. I plan on lowering the one that will be over my carving bench a little more. I will be sitting in front of a window too, so I should not have any issues with shadows.

I bought these lights from Home Depot and I love them!! In my opinion, LED lights are the way to go.

We are going to have some heavy rainfall for a few days as this hurricane comes ashore down south of us. We are out of the landfall area but we are on the "dirty" side......meaning the east side of the storm. That means we get the rains as the storms spins and slings the bans out from the eye.

So what this means is.....I don't get to build my benches and set up my tools this weekend. Dang it!!!! LOL

Thanks for the compliments!

Here's a tip. Paint it white inside, the glossiest paint you can find, and at least two coats; I'd suggest a roller. It'll look like an ice cube at first, but it will dim down when you start filling it up, and sawdust gets on the walls. When I say paint, I mean walls, ceiling, floor, doors, everything. It will make a large difference in lightening the inside over just plain plywood.
Frank I agree with Theo about painting the inside white. I had a shop (24X32) that I built myself and I didn't paint it. I used OSB on walls and ceiling and never had enough lighting.

Mike, I appreciate the offer to help you sand......but everyone says I need to paint my walls, ceilings and floor of my shop. So I guess I will stay home. LOL

LED's are definitely the way to go Frank...The one thing about them I really like is that they do not "settle in" after some run time. At a minimum I'd paint the wall where you'll be spending most of your working time with a high gloss white latex. A good primer first. That ply is gonna suck up the paint. A good auxiliary light with a magnetic base should suffice at other locations. But, heck, ya got the paint out, you got the brush out, you're already gonna paint something, so why not just go for it. If your going to paint the floor, paint it last That way, you won't have to worry about being too terribly neat about painting the rest of it. Personally i wouldn't bother with the ceiling.

Stay right and tight with the storm blowing in....sounding like you folks are going to get ALOT of water in a short amount of time...
