If youre a handyman, you need a workbench in the garage. A real handyman can build one if room is available, and the workbench is the essential first step before true creativeness of an inventor or handyman can be let loose. Prior to beginning building of the workbench, accurate measurements of the space available are needed. This ensures the design will fit the available space and still leave room for any cars or other items to be parked in the garage along side the workbench.
If your house and garage are attached, your choice in placement may be limited. Putting the garage workbench against a shared wall is a good idea for ease of electrical outlet installation. It will also be the area to give you the most warmth during cold months. Some insulation for sound should be considered so the folks in the house are not bothered by the noise. If your garage stands alone, you may find it easier to select an area. Ideally, place your garage workbench along a bare wall in order to have plenty of room for cabinets and shelves on one or both sides of the workbench. By positioning your workbench on the opposite wall of a window, you will be provided with the most natural light.
Workbenches in their basic form consist of a worktop surface and support legs. Two saw horses with a sheet of plywood laid across them can be defined as a workbench. This design may be suitable for laying out drawings or holding a few tools, however without additional support it will not provide much more in the way of functionality or utility. Basic workbench design should include additional support structures and a strong worktop surface that will increase the load capacity of the workbench. The design may include support stringers, lower shelves, drawers, back and end stops, risers or any number of additional, specialty attachments.
Workbench size, height and mobility are also very important and vary by application. Sail makers may require very large work surfaces to spread out fabrics while jewelers and electronics repair shops may prefer smaller work tops for easy tool and parts access. The height also is important when choosing a design. Workbenches designed for standing work in general are higher than those intended for sitting. The worktop height is also dependent on the workers individual height. Many designs incorporate adjustable legs allowing for multiple heights, application types and for leveling the worktop over uneven surfaces. For some applications mobility may be required so casters are installed allowing the workbench to be moved around. The best approach is to get a workbench that is sufficiently large for your needs, has adjustable height for experimentation, and is on casters if mobility is required for your specific application.
If there is one place in the house that is most suited for your craftsmanship, it would be the garage. Some people opt for the basement but not all houses have that extra room. A garage is a more common part and it is where dirty jobs can be done, simply because it does not need to be kept so clean all the time, as compared to the other areas. Despite that, you still need something to help you in order to make your job less stressful, such as a garage workbench. Ideas and suggestions on the things to consider when choosing one are listed below to help you find the perfect furniture for the space you have.
