Warming box?
#9
  
I'm looking for a plug-in box to keep finishes and glue at normal room temperature in a cold shop. Food warmers seem to get too hot for that. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Old fridge with a light bulb inside. (Incandescent not led)

A box or crate of any material and a 15 watt incandescent bulb would keep things warm.

Also boot warmers radiate moderate heat and are just $15.00 on Amazon.com.

The box or old fridge with alight bulb is the easiest way as suggested.  Just to add, one can also do the same trick to make a kiln for drying small-ish wood parts.  I've seen them for Windsor chair parts that have been shaped while the wood was still green, and then dried in a small kiln 24 hours to reduce moisture content.  The box I saw was a simple insulated plywood box with a 100-watt incandescent bulb to provide heat; the temp inside that small kiln was about 120 degrees F.

Thanks, all, great ideas. The boot warmer might be easiest and cheapest.

A terrarium heater with or without a thermostat.

I used the refridgerator and light bulb setup for years in my old shop. Works great.

Golden Rod dehumidifiers can supply some heat and don't take much electricity.
