My shop is more or less half of a two car garage in my basement. In it, most of the room is taken up by my workbench and my tablesaw. The outfeed table has crept onto my wifes half of the garage. The rest is mainly area to store stuff, either on shelves or piled up on the floor. It has been a good area for me and I am kind of getting it where it is most useful. I did add some flourescent lighting, but it is still not enough. I am also lacking enough power. I would really like to add 240VAC at some point as well as some general purpose 120VAC circuits as well. I purchased a 120 volt table saw because of this limitation and really wish I had just taken care of the power at the time and not limited myself like I did. At some point I would really like to add dust collection both for my health and to cut down on the mess.
Update: I finally did add a subpanel and a dedicate circuit to my tablesaw and to my jointer. I also got an Oneida cyclone dust collector (one of the V-systems I think they cal it) and wired a dedicated circuit for it. It is great. I has really changed the dynamic of the shop. I would love to have it hard piped in, but I can’t afford that now. I just use a 5 inch hose that I moved between machines.
