B. Workshop

B. Workshop

My workshop is just a big clear tarp over a fairly sturdy pergola in my back yard. Bet you don't know what a pergola is - google will tell you...

I worked on and off through the winter. I started with a propane heater that was pretty hot, but caused massive humidity within the workshop. I switched to a 1500 watt electric heater, which was not as hot but provides a nice dry heat. I use Industrial Formulators' Cold Cure epoxy during the winter. If the weather was about 2 Celsius or warmer the electric heater would warm it up to about 6-10 degrees. This is a reasonably comfortable working temperature, and allows the epoxy to set.

Now that the weather is warming up I'll switch to one of the standard East/West system epoxies.
