Basement workshop - Having a woodworking shop in the basement is nice and allows for a more permanent setup of the shop tools. A basement shop does present some interesting challenges. Most basements have a low ceiling height. The typical basement ceiling height is seven feet. This makes lighting a challenge since hanging lights from the joists leads to potential head banging and being struck when moving material around the woodshop.
3. You can cut very thick lumber with a bandsaw. The one I made will cut a depth of 12 inches, which is not possible to do with a table saw. 4. You can make resaw cuts on lumber with a bandsaw to make bookend type doors or plaques, as one side will be a mirror image to the other. You can also resaw lumber and make thin boards for such projects as miniatures. With my saw I was able to make small outhouse toilet paper holders, kleenex holders and other miniature outhouses for a friend that had outhouse decor in her spare bathroom.
Garage workshop - Garage workshops have a unique need of being multipurpose serving as both workshop and parking the family car(s). All of the tools need to be mobile and be quickly and easily moved out of the way. The lighting needs to be flexible and be out of the way of the garage door. For a standard two car garage that measures approximately 22 x 24 feet, two to four two tube fluorescent fixtures will provide ample lighting of the work space.
