Shop heat: Ya gotta feel it (It's electric!)
Build a mobile warming station that rolls to wherever you're working for on-the-spot warmth.
My unheated garage shop gets pretty cold during Midwest winters, so I built a mobile warming station that rolls to wherever I'm working to provide on-the-spot warmth. To make the radiant heater portable, I mounted it to a rack to fit on a mobile cabinet. The rack fastens securely using a pair of carriage bolts, washers, and knobs on each side of the cabinet, allowing me to disassemble and store it during warm weather. The height of the finished frame places it just below the ceiling.
