Chmura Custom Woodworks and the Dog Days of Summer!
The Dog Days of Summer are Upon Us: Advice for Woodworking Outdoors
We just finished building a deck for a client in Brunswick, Ohio. It was only 10 ft. x 16 ft. custom built deck but the extreme heat and a southern exposure really zapped our energy.
Here are some suggestions for deck building or any kind of work in the summer heat:
- Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water.
- Take plenty of breaks.
- Find some shade.
- We put up a collapsible canopy to help keep us cool.
- Don’t over do it. Heat exhaustion can creep up on you.
- Work in the morning and evening if possible when the temperature is cooler.
Have a great summer project season and above all, be safe!
I will be back soon with more custom woodworking updates.
Thank you for stopping by!
