I’ve completed a new shop cabinet to contain and protect my finishes and glues from the freezing cold. I know, I know, it’s almost March. We still have many cold nights on us (down to 21ºF forecast for tonight) and I’m tired of carrying bottles into the house and back out to the garage every time I want to work on something. This idea came from Scott Landis’ The Workshop Book, where he illustrated a smaller box in B/W with a light bulb in one corner and a thermostat in the upper corner to turn it off and on. My George helped me wire the two in series, so I can set the temperature at about 55º and count on it keeping things from freezing. I’m gonna’ love this. It’s tall and skinny (60” x 15”w x 10” deep) to fit a space available. Access isn’t great (behind the big lathe) but I can get to what I need well enough. Changing that light bulb on the bottom may prove a challenge, though. Nothing’s perfect.
