Has anyone built or had experience with or even need a heated cabinet to keep your liquids like finish, glue, paint etc in during the freezing winter?
I’m in Northern Illinois and have a rather large, but unheated shop. I’m picking up a woodburning stove tomorrow and have a couple propane heaters, but I can’t keep the shop heated at all times. Because of this, my glues (and other liquids) are always thick, if not frozen and ruined.
Would you think it possible to simply take a metal cabinet from the store (or better yet a resale shop) and put a light bulb in it?
Would you put the light bulb at the top or the bottom?
Would you put in the effort of installing the light on some sort of thermostat (any ideas as to what kind) or fan?
Thank you in advance.
