I’ve been fortunate to have a woodshop most of my liife. The first foto even has the shop bench I remember my Dad making almost 60 years ago.
Last year we moved into a new house that had a very open basement. In fact, the rest of the house belongs to my wife but the shop is mine. I’ve taken about a 1000 feet of the basement for my shop.
The most important thing I did with this new shop was paint the floor with epoxy. It is the greatest way to diminish dust. The second most important thing was the shop vacuum.
The greatest improvement over my other shop was installing T-8 fluorescent lights, with 3500 rating (That’s an 835 in T-8 ratings) I’m told that’s pretty close to daylight. There is also no warm up time liike the T-12’s and no hum.
The work table in the middle is a torsion box and it was planned so that the middle could be used for assembly of large projects.
-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
