Home Depot provided me with the materials to greatly improve the lighting in the shop. I used the last of my piece of driftwood to make a really unattractive lighting unit that now sits above my workbench. Makes a big difference. This combined with the task lights on my drill press and bandsaw and I feel like, well, like I can see clearly now.
I also made a jig for my router that will work like a mini plane. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m hoping I’ll be able to carve tops and plane highly figured wood with more ease/less grisly mistakes.
