Picked up from Craigslist today in the FREE section: 15 hung ceiling recessed florescent lights. Four footers, four bulbs each. A guy took them out of a store he was hired to renovate. I already have some up in the shop. Put them up years ago. With the diffusers they provide great light. You can run them either two or four bulbs. I screw them to the ceiling and cut some strips of sanded 3/4” plywood and build a box right around them. These lights don’t hum or flicker as they&#...

Workshop #2: Extension bars for lighting rig

02-25-2013 04:30 PM by BritBoxmaker | 4 comments »

These are simple really. Just a 450 mm length of 70 mm x 20 mm with a 70 mm square screwed to the bottom, braced with 45° wedges. Attached as seen in the pic’s. To get the right length for these I simply raised a box upwards toward the lights at their ceiling height until the lighting on it looked right and noted how far I would have to drop the lights to light the box on the bench. As you can see they are held by two coach bolts at the top and the light is held onto the ...

Shop & Tool Growing Pains #10: Shed some light on the plan

12-19-2012 02:48 PM by pendledad | 2 comments »

Shop ProgressSo I successfully wired up my first circuit ever. It was so much easier than I thought, I can’t believe I’ve been so afraid of electrical work before. Anyways, I have 3 lights wired to a switch, and even down to 30 degree weather, they flick on instantly. If it gets really cold, the lights will still turn on, but it will take a minute or two for them to warm up and get super bright. I bought 0 degree fixtures because I knew it would get cold during the winter. Wi...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #9: New Shop Lighting

09-17-2009 05:30 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 28 comments »

Bright Light! Bright Light! Over the last couple of days I added lights to brighten the shop. Shop Light Envy After seeing the lights in Les Hasting's shop I was motivated to install more lights in my own. There is nothing like shop envy to motivate a guy. The Original Lighting The original lighting situation in my shop was poor and inadequate. I had three 4’x4’ units with 6 bulbs over the assembly and finish area. There was only one of these 4’x4’ l...

Oak Wall/Canopy #6: Final Assembly

07-28-2009 03:35 PM by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

It is dyed, stained and sprayed. Now for the final assembly. There is a lot more on this project, as in final assembly, then on most of my projects. I had to add the lights in the piers, headboard and header. I usually use curio lights behind the shelves, but I wanted to try some long florescent lights this time. I am still waiting for the glass for the top and the smoked glass doors. They should be ready today and I can post the finish project. Here are a couple pictures: Fo...

log [drying] racks #2: finished!

06-11-2009 02:34 PM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I got the last 2 of the 5 sections built last week, sans the corrugated roofing. Here’s how I did it, at warp speed: This marked the first use of my new truck, for 2×4s and small ply panels from Home Depot. What a joy! As an aside, when I cut this particular 2×4 to length… ...I made a new friend. I think it’s a fat bird. As another side, whenever I stack up cut 2×4s like this, I get a terrific urge to build a deck, or workbench: ...
