We are in the midst of planning our new house and we are looking at a walk out basement workshop, mostly for wood working but a little of this and that as well. It will be somewhere around 28'x44', maybe will a small portion dedicated to storage. Any suggestions are welcome, outlet locations, workbenches, tool storage, lighting, dust control, doors etc. We already have a table saw, drill press, chop saw, planer and some other assorted smaller tools to fit in.

RE: Basement Workshop, suggestions? resources?

LOL, when we bought our current house, the real estate agents were always showing use stuff. On several occasions we went to the basement and came back up, saying, "This place just won't work for us."

A couple of good references:
