Room Update...
So far wiring is complete. took into consideration the possible use of a small welder so I wired a 240 volt outlet into one wall. Dust suction system to be located outside of the hobby room in the garage along with a compressor.

Due to narrow width of the room I have built a workbench that collapses into the wall. Island style workbench to be main work bench used and it features the ability to move around and has electrical outlets both in teh cabinets as well as overhead hanging from the ceiling on retractable cord reels.

drill press, scroll saw and belt/disc sander located in one corner with dust evacuation system located above see link ( look under air cleaners! Dust suction system will be hooke dto each piece of equipment. A small bathroom exhaust fan in the ceiling to remove stray fumes, flatulence or gastrict eruptions.

will post photos when all completed.

I also had a cement floor in my basement.
I found it quite cool, so I clued 1" pink foam down
and covered with 5/8" spruce plywood, the tongue & groove
4 by 8 sheets. also glued down. The pink stryro was 2' by 8'
so I laid the plywood the other way so not to have the joints
in the same place. First piece of Foam was cut at 1'.
Went out an found a cushion flooring reminent, glued
it down and now I have a much more comfortable
room to work.

Must admit that it cost a little more, but was worth it.
I can now stay down there for hours without cold feet.

I used power bars on the ceiling. Each power bar has
a power switch so you can power down at anytime. Particularly
nice when using your irons and want to take a break.
