Having your own work area in the garage is a very important need for a woodworker or DIY expert, especially if you take on several projects. There is a need for a solid woodworking table where you can place your crafts and the items that you are repairing. Some garage workbenches are more expensive than others, but it doesnt mean the more expensive a workbench is, the sturdier it is. Cost doesnt equate to quality, and you need to make sure you are getting the best value for your money. You can even look for workbenches used by previous owners. These perhaps are more durable than some new ones since they have already been broken in and tested by the previous owner, assuring you that it will withstand pressure and heavy use once you start on your projects.
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.
In addition to the main pieces of a workbench there are many add-ons that are used to increase utility. Back and End stops might be installed to prevent things from rolling off onto the floor. Drawers, shelves and risers can be added for increased storage. Electrical power strips and outlet cutouts can be incorporated into the design as well to run tools, grinders, drill presses, etc. Vises and clamps can also be added to help secure whatever you are working on. The best place to start when choosing a design is to define the intended use. Once that is established the support structure, worktop, add-ons and size can be more easily selected. There are literally thousands of available workbench designs and configurations, many of which will suit your needs and budget. When in doubt contact your supplier for assistance selecting an appropriate design.
