If I am looking for blanks for spindles, do I want figure? Wouldn’t I rather have straighter grain for strength in legs for chairs/tables?

Also, I’m now looking into more portable solutions, maybe if I could find a bandsaw that is light enough for me to take from my basement to the outdoors for use, it would be far less of a problem.

My house is pre-civil war and the floors/ceilings do not seal at all, so any dust (or smoke, etc) from the basement is very strong in the first floor and often noticeable on the second or even the third floor, and I do not have a garage or auxiliary structure to use as a shop.
