Lighting is very important in any shop. Sometimes you don’t want to hardwire a light in or don’t exactly know how, but need that extra light somewhere. Here I show you an easy to install light.
Started a new video series for a pine shadowbox that some friends asked for. Relatively straight forward. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RWL9ZbsnjA
Here’s an overview of a box just completed to hold one of my LED video lights. It’s made from 1/2” Appleply plywood and hardboard, French fitted inside to hold the light and accessories.
A journey into the workshop. #98: I got too lazy to drain the compressor tank... The updated video...
