Shop Heating Choices
Winter is on the way. Is your workspace ready?
The day Ken Textor picked up some #6 screws in his unheated shop and they stuck to his ungloved fingers, he began investigating heating options seriously. He decided to heat an area that would allow him to glue, finish, and do intricate woodwork, leading him to the first major decision of heating his shop: how much of it do you heat? He chose to use solid-foam insulation and evaluated safety, economy, and simplicity in choosing a heat source. He settled on propane and explains why. A side article highlights the heating choices four other woodworkers chose.
