That's pretty low humidity. You're running the risk of cracks and problems with seams coming apart, unless you live in an arid area with low humidity as the norm. Do you have electricity? You can run a stand alone humidifier. Walmart, big box stores, and Amazon carry them, to name a few places.


Yeah....workshop is in my basement, so that's not gonna work long term. Sounds like I should move my materials upstairs for the winter and restart in the spring. Still mulling this over....

Not sure where you live, but in a mixed or cold climate the RH is typically higher in the basement because of 2 things - there are more moisture sources in the surrounding buried walls and slab, and the temperature is cooler, both of which raise the RH.

Check to be sure, but it will probably be drier - lower RH - upstairs. Raising the temperature of the basement with also lower the RH.

Thanks Ed... yeah, the RH is also dry as heck upstairs. I keep a spare bedroom temp/RH controlled, where I keep all my gits. I could move some materials (anything glued up) in there if I had to, but not a workshop. So I can either live with the temp/RH downstairs and continue, or store what I've done and pick it up again in the spring.
