I have never owned a shed, but I think this would make a pretty good laser studio for $899.
You live significantly further south than I do, I’m assuming…
We use one of the smaller ones for lawnmower and yard tool storage…so far, so good! (You do have to lay a slab or build a platform for it - hubs put a raised deck in one weekend and assembled the shed the next.)
Not meaning to sound critical, but I would probably urge you to look at other options. Why?
- The Glowforge has operating parameters for temp and a shed isn’t normally able to control those effectively.
- Humidity levels can fluctuate more greatly and can lead to condensation which wouldn’t be real great for the machine. (Ask anyone who has a table saw in a non-climate controlled shed or garage about dealing with condensation and rust.
- In case of a natural disaster there might be different coverages for a dwelling and contents and outbuildings and contents.
Just some thoughts offered constructively.
For your table saw I recommend BOESHIELD T-4 or something like that, been a while since I looked at the can.
kind of like wax. put that on my saw table and never any rust.
I’d be concerned about thermal parameters. Otherwise, could be great laser studio.
I am in Florida, so my biggest concern would be hurricanes.
Also my HOA would not allow any sheds.
I just like the idea of a tiny workshop of my own.
Hurricanes, and would not run outside/in shed without A/C.
a small box-trailer is a lot like a shed, and can often get around HOA restrictions.
