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.

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.
Maple workbench tops lead the crowd as a top choice of homeowners because they look great and are tough enough to withstand years of abuse and still survive. Maple butcher-block tops are made of compressed strips of hard maple glued together in the required size and finished with a smooth nonporous low maintenance acrylic finish that enhances the natural wood color. Maple butcher-block bench tops are available online and from your local garage remodeling companies. Workbench tops are made in standard sizes or they can be designed and created to your custom size requirements.
Whether you choose hardwood or sheet metal, you are sure to find several ways to make your workbench more functional. To have more space in your workbench, consider installing drawers and compartments into the overall design of your project. This will not only leave you with an opportunity to have a bigger working area, but will also give you access to your tools should you need any of them. One of the most important factors to consider before installing a workbench in your garage is its accessibility to a power outlet. This is because you are sure to need electrical tools that can help make working on your projects easier and faster. Before building your own or buying a pre-made workbench, make sure the space you plan on installing it in has easy access to a good power source.
