Installing 100,000 lumens of sweet, sweet LED goodness in the workshop.


Yikes! I recently moved into a new shop and the lighting is abysmal! To fix this I picked up two packs of LED light strips equal to 100,000 lumens! The install and process of hooking them up was super quick and easy. Adding better lighting to your workspace is guaranteed to increase your enjoyment of making things by at least 42%!
I installed 20 of the Barrina LED light fixtures (4′ long, 5000 lumens, 40 watts, 5000 kelvin) for a total of 100,000 lumens! The shop space is 620 square feet, and I thought perhaps that many lumens might be too much, but now that they’re installed Iā€™m super glad I went with that many light fixtures.
