My shop is above the kitchen and is a secondary form of attic space with no insulation in the eves, 2 very tiny windows of which only 2 open and no insulation but lots of direct sunlight. The other day when it hit 98* here I tried going in the shop, I started sweating the moment I opened the door and was hit with a wave of heat. Half hour later my shirt was drenched and I was becoming dizzy from the heat. Had no choice but to give up, only thing I managed to do was make my first pen. Took three trips to the shop despite only taking a total of about an hour to make one.
The one upside is that the applewood I sliced up back in april that is stickered in my shop has to be practically dry with the last 2 weeks worth of heat.
