They do this by connecting the legs together below the worktop and forming a rigid structure that helps support itself. Without additional support the workbench legs would easily fold under and collapse when weight is applied. The design may favor stringers alone if the workbench is intended to be used while sitting, allowing for the persons legs to extend under the worktop. Lower shelves may also be incorporated into the design for storage below the worktop surface, and may be partial or full sized shelves depending on its use. Though load carrying capacities are frequently not listed on workbenches, a general rule of thumb is to use a thicker gauge steel support structure for heavier duty workbench applications.
If space is an issue, a fold-up garage workbench takes up little room when not in use. They are often designed with cabinet space to hang tools and hardware, and the hinged bench folds into that space with its legs tucked under. When you need to work, simply unfold the top, prop up the legs and get to it. Select one with a leg system that is sturdy enough for your needs. Make sure to allow adequate space to work in when the bench is laid out.
The drawback is once damaged it may be expensive to replace. Manufactured work surfaces like MDF or particleboard is the preferred surface for industry. They are warp and splinter proof and are highly resistant to oil and moisture. They are also less expensive than hardwood and can be easily replaced if damaged. Plastic worktops provide strength, chemical resistance, and are non-conductive. Plastic is great for electronics assembly, circuit board repair or any application that may be prone to spills. However plastic may be too slippery for woodworking and favor applications like ceramics work, pottery or anything that requires moisture or chemical resistance.
