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.
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.
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.
