P.S. What are those rods along the wall to the right of your jewelry bench. My first thought was dipped mandrels but they look awfully big so I'm probably wrong
They are dipped mandrels, I make some very large hole beads for leather stringing and I have 1/4 and 1/2 in mandrels over there. Proud to say I made those big block of wood holders myself! LOL

Yep! Some big ol mandrels..

Oh how exciting for you...Small works out well for heating and cooling and just plain cozy feeling but it does take more design work.

The exhaust system will be vented overhead to the vent in the wall above the tool chest. I will add more pics this evening for you. I am using what I had set up before and you can see that in my horse trailer thread.

This time it will be mounted on a frame outside the studio because it was just noisy! I am bringing in fresh air from the outside to the under side of the back of the torch bench. Before hubby sheet rocked he added a small framed in area in the wall near the floor with electrical switch up high in my reach for an intake fan. It is 3 speed high cfms to match the exhaust fan.

I am also putting the tanked fuels on the outside right where the torch bench wall is and piping it all in with safety valves on the inside and the outside. I will put a small chain link dog kennel around the tanks and over it with shade cloth to try to hide them and have them locked in.

Our BBQ is on the back side of the studio too so that will look natural to see a tank out there. Everyone here is meth lab terrified and rightly so, I don't need a visit from a truck full of swat team members storming the property!!!

So much left to do, but it will be worth it. I will get some pics up tonight.
