    They are Led Batten Lights by Barrina. You can find easily on Amazon. 8 x 2200lm divided in 3 groups: 4 for general light, 2 on top of the workbench and 2 on top of the 3 rolling carts on the back that work as a secondary bench. It is overkill but gives me flexibility. The working lamps are IKEA...

    Project management

    I agree with @Agent_zed that MS Project (and Primavera P6 or any of these heavy-weight Gantt-based software) is "too indepth for simple work planning". For individual projects under, lets say half a million pounds, they are simply not very cost-effective IMHO. The amount of work you have to...

    Project management

    Although I can't contribute with an answer, I am very curious to see the responses to your question @True Joinery ltd. Just for clarification (forgive if it is a stupid question), what do you mean by "manage projects"? Would it be manage the tasks order and utilization of your machinery/tools...

    Internal electrical installation done. Loving the workbench setup with the working lights: Still lots to do on shop organisation, though.

    Finish advice for walnut guitar amp head

    On the theme of walnut finishes and musical instruments, like many others I opted for Tru-Oil applied with wet and dry sandpaper and achieved a very good result (in my opinion): It is a very tedious (or therapeutic) process. In my case 20+ coats. You can get it to a very shiny finish if you...

    I just want to give a shout out to @Steve Maskery great video on setting up the Kity P/T. Found it by chance and was happy to see that you are a member of this forum too. Thank you for such a clear and informative video.

    The electrician has not come yet (:mad:) and I am avoiding bringing all the stuff from the shed inside the workshop to make his life easier. However, I couldn't help myself and jumped into an opportunity (or a trap?): It even matches the workshop outside color! :D Now, I need to find a...

    I understand you. I had the same understanding until someone explained to me and pointed me on the right direction. The regulations are not as clear as they could/should be.

    From the planning portal: “If the outbuilding is within 2 metres of the property boundary the whole building should not exceed 2.5 metres in height.”

    Log Cabin Workshop 3.5m x 4.5m

    Now that my roof is done I measured the height and I am exactly at 2.5m. It was odd to measure as the highest point of the ground was at a corner of the building but the highest point of the building is at its apex. Now, if my neighbour measures from his side, the building will look definitely...

    I managed to do the rest of the roof work today just in time for the rain. I still have the trimmings and fascias to finish, but at least now if SWMBO kicks me out of bed I have a dry place to sleep.
