Garage Workbench. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 18:18:14 PM
A workbench should be higher than a desk, as you must be able to stand and work comfortably, with your arms bent at the right angle. Some experts suggest that the table tops height should be at the level of your navel or at the crease of your wrist. Others find it more comfortable and usable at a higher level. If you want extra work room and support, consider the height of your table saw and place both together as a unit. You can set up a prototype bench by placing a sheet of plywood on some blocks in order to determine which height works best for you.
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.
Selecting the right top for your garage or basement workbench starts by knowing how you want to use it and the type of work you will do. In addition, knowing how you will be using the workbench will help you determine the type of storage that is required. For automotive and related uses, consider a laminate top or stainless steel for ease of maintenance, durability and overall appearance. If you are a do it your self kind of person who likes to do home repairs and refinish furniture? A workbench with a maple butcher-block top, even 16-gauge steel, will provide very low maintenance and have extremely smooth non-sticking surfaces. What you decide should be unique to you and reflect how you will use the workbench.
