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.
The most common home woodworking shop light fixture is the tube fluorescent lighting. They are energy efficient, low cost and easy to install. When designing the lighting for the woodshop, first determine where all of the woodworking tools will be positioned in the workshop. This can be done to scale on paper or physically placing each tool it its designated location. Once this has been done, you can now begin to determine your lighting needs. Where lights need to be placed and how much light you will need. This will help you to properly illuminate your workshop.
