Garage Workbench. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 21:09:43 PM
If your at-home carpentry jobs have been taking place in the driveway or on the floor of your garage, you can build you own garage workbench tailored to fit your personal needs, and you dont need to spend a lot of money doing it. A garage workbench will spare you back and knees, and, if you decide to make it a bit more complex, will have drawers and shelves in which you can keep the tools ad materials for your carpentry jobs.
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.
A common material for pre-manufactured workbench legs and supports is steel sheet. As we discussed in our previous article "A Handy Guide on Shelving Systems for the Home Garage and Workplace", the thickness of sheet metal is called its gauge and the lower its gauge number is, the thicker the steel is. Steel sheet ranges from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge, with thinner 30+ gauge material called foil and thicker 8 gauge or less material called plate. Typical workbench supports range from around 12 to 16 gauge. Stringers and lower shelves add stability and strength to the legs and allow for heavier loads to be applied.
