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 type of tool and the tools working area will help determine how much light is needed. Table saws need to have at least their table top well illuminated. The out feed table needs some light but not as much. For a table saw a four foot fluorescent tube light over the table saw table will provide plenty of light.
I got to brainstorming with all the things I had sitting around. I had a couple of old Ford flywheels from Fords that I had junked out in the last couple years, and figured that I could use those for wheels for a bandsaw. I also had a couple front hubs and brackets from an old Chevy Cavalier that I could use for bearings and support for the wheels of a bandsaw. I had some old steel sitting around that I could for a frame and table. I also had a large piece of sheet aluminum that I could use for covers for the wheels and the table.
