Brightening up your workplace will make work easier and cut down on mistakes and mishaps. To free your benchwork of glare and shadows use two 48-in. tubes in a utility fluorescent fixture, centered over the front edge of your workbench, 48 in. above the work area. For extra light to see details, consider portable halogen worklights. Tripods for these lights makes it easy to put light where you need it. Also consider clamping lamps with a 50-watt reflector bulb near task areas like vises and drill presses.
Always give wood flooring and paneling a chance to acclimate prior to installation by storing it properly on the job for a 5-7 day period.
