Garage Workbench. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 20:56:14 PM
Workbenches are a necessity in almost every garage, workshop or warehouse. They provide a surface to work on at a comfortable height and range from simple flat designs to complex, specialty benches designed for specific industries and needs. There is a limitless amount of designs for both custom and pre-manufactured workbenches and one can quickly become overwhelmed when trying to decide on a design. For those people who are handy a custom built workbench can be a fun and very rewarding project. However it can be time consuming and if not done correctly could end up in the garbage pile. Pre-manufactured workbenches can be an economical solution and with countless designs available may be a better choice. This article will focus on design and selection of pre-manufactured workbenches for the home garage and workplace.
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.
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.
