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.
5. You can make lumber from tree limbs that have fallen from storm damage or limbs that you harvest for the purpose of making lumber. I usually use about a 4 foot piece, which is about how much I can lift. I have made lumber from oak, walnut, elm, boxelder, and hickory limbs. The beautiful rose color that the boxelder had enabled me to make nice pen blanks, plaques and other pen holders.
So whether you decide to build a bandsaw or something else with the things you have collecting dust in your shop, dont throw them away when spring cleaning time comes, you may just need them later when you think of something that you want or need, but dont want to pay the price commercially. A couple of other things I made with things just laying around in my shop was a utility trailer and a small overhead hoist, which enabled me to lift heavy things such as my rototiller and sprayer up to the top level of my shop.
