How To Vent a Basement Wall


I have a woodworking shop in my basement, but it does not have any wall vents or doors that lead to the outside. I do have an air circulation system, but this just basically moves the air around.
What is the best way to put a couple of vents in the basement so I can get some air exchange in and out? I am choking on the sawdust and fumes.
Thanks for any help.

You need a dust collection system and air filtration unit. You're
asking for trouble if you have fumes and dust. You need to isolate the finishing from the cutting areas.
You can put in an exhaust fan if you want, just make sure it's, "explosion proof", for the finising area.
