Depending on the type of work you do, you may need to move oversized or heavy items from your vehicle to the workspace often enough to consider location during the planning process. Availability of electrical power is also a consideration during the planning phase for a workbench, although its usually a cinch for an electrician to tap some power to any location in the garage for the cost of a service call. With your workbench design ready to satisfy the above three requirements to one degree or another, its time to start work. Gather together all the supplies tools needed - nuts and bolts, nails, screws, etc. If varnish or painting the workbench is part of your plans, youll need those supplies too.
Building your own workbench gives good practice when handling more complicated projects. Since a workbench is not a decorative piece of furniture, finish and perfection are not required. Another advantage to building your own, is that standard pre-fabricated workbenches available for purchase are mass produced in sizes that might not fit the space you have available. By building your own garage workbench, you can decide on the particular specifications for every aspect of the bench. Every feature has a purpose, and no space is wasted. If youre building from scratch or using someone elses blueprints, modified or not, youve got a sturdy piece of garage equipment that will easily surpass the quality of any mass produced, once size fits all workbench for purchase.
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. The design may favor stringers alone if the workbench is intended to be used while sitting, allowing for the persons legs to extend under the worktop. 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.
