I have 2 wood stoves in my home and electric heat (hey, I,m in Canada, eh?) and the stoves produce great heat. One problem many people have is that their stove is really too big for the space and they operate it at a low temp. and have problems (safety) with creosote. You mentioned your room isn’t very big—- for a small space when you factor in the cost of a safe chimney (often more than the stove), electric heater may be the best. The recent electric space heaters are pretty efficient (my $69.00 Seabreeze Smart Thermaflo™ 1500W Pulse Action Heater Fan Model: SOH3003TA works well and automatically adjusts output and claims 33% less cost; + there are radiant heaters that will heat you & your tools but not the air.)

Suggestion: Keep it simple—Why not get an electric heater or two & try them out for a day or so—- if you are not happy most stores would provide a refund.
