« Part 1: Building it Part 2 of My workshop series Part 3: More progress on workshop »

The electrician starts tomorrow. He has to replace my 130 amp house breaker box with a 200 amp box and run an underground conduit to the workshop.
Then he roughs in the 120 and 220 circuits and the T8 florescent lighting.
Not cheap, but I will have all the electrical up to code.

I just heard that Sam Maloof has passed away. His work is inspiring to any woodworker, no matter what style you are interested in. He will be missed.

Take a lot of pictures of everything before things get covered up.

That way if you ever need to change something you will know exactly where everything it at.

I did and it makes a big difference!

I agree with Gary. Take a bunch of pictures. That way you can always look back and see what it looked like when it was clean

I did take many pictures of the wiring, etc. so that I can put together a drawing showing where all of the wiring is installed. Thanks for the suggestion
