Steel frames for benchwork are in place. Iíve noted general locations. The frames were a great idea from my friend John Klocker. A local steel fabricator welded, sandblasted, and primed the frames for $12 per piece. Thatís a ďstealĒ!

I decided to remove the fluorescent troffer lights and replace with dimmable LED panel lights. I also changed the color temperature from 5000K to 4000K for a warmer light which makes the layout colors more vivid.

The LED panels are controlled wirelessly by two Lutron Pico units. I staggered the 12 panel lights between the two Pico units to simulate variations in light on a bright, but cloudy, day.
