This weekend was a blast. I got to spend some time both up and down the family tree. Me and my dad started the wiring in the shop on Saturday. We rerouted some existing conduit to make room for the lights. Then we installed a light fixture on the ceiling.
I bought some t8 zero degree 4’ lights at Lowe’s. Hopefully they’ll work well.
Today I decided to get my son out in the shop with me. I had a few tasks that he could help with which weren’t too dangerous. He is only 3, but I want to start him early working with his hands and get him away from the computers , tablets, and video games. Anyway he helped me mount a few more boxes. He handled the impact driver like a champ. Then he helped me snap a chalk line, then mount a furing strip of ply up with some more impact work.
So hilarious because he kept saying it sounded like it was farting when the impact started.
More wiring will continue this week and I’ll orient the bench when the outlets are live. Then will come the table saw purchase (before year end).
Here are some pictures of the weekend work
I got a little more done this week. I’ve never done wiring before so I am taking my time with all the connections. The flexible conduit doesn’t like straight lines as seen by the wavy runs on the ceiling, but I’m trying my best.
I have all three lights wired to the switch and I’m ready to hook it up to a new 15 amp circuit tomorrow. Here are a couple of shots to see the disaster I’ve made doing this work.
