Garage Workbench. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 20:48:10 PM
Even if you only use hand tools to make your own wood crafts, you will never know when you might have to use a power tool, and garage workbenches are of no help when they are a great distance away from an electrical outlet. Plan your work area properly to make sure that you have everything you need including drawers, pegs for hanging tools, safety ladders, and of course, a good power source. This will make your woodworking project easier to do and more convenient.
For the DIY workbench designers out there, consider building it permanently to the exposed wall studs in your garage walls. This type of bench is, for all intensive purpose, permanent, but can easily be dismantled in needed. It gives work space far more sturdy than the types found for purchase in the hardware store, and can be customized as much as you want. Once you have a good idea on the size and location of your workbench, its time to consider storage space for tools, supplies and raw materials that you tend to work with most. You can build shelving underneath the workbench to provide enormous amounts of storage space for hobby supplies or other garage relegated storage. Cabinets or shelves above the workbench provide additional storage, or you can always use pegboard to arrange tools for hanging storage.
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.
