Hello Jack. I live in the snowy north and it is so nice to have a heated shop that I can just walk out to and start working. I built my shop on the second floor of my barn. I have a boiler downstairs and a long baseboard in the shop. I did this for exactly the reason you mentioned. I didn’t want to start the shop on fire.

I’ve seen many Amish shops in my area that heat with a big wood stove in center of their shop. I assume they must be careful to always keep sawdust cleaned up etc.

A good dust collecting system will also minimize fire danger. I guess common sense comes into play but I still like my baseboard heat!
