Garage Workbench. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 18:37:35 PM
Even if you only use hand tools to make your own wood crafts, you will never know when you might have to use a power tool, and garage workbenches are of no help when they are a great distance away from an electrical outlet. Plan your work area properly to make sure that you have everything you need including drawers, pegs for hanging tools, safety ladders, and of course, a good power source. This will make your woodworking project easier to do and more convenient.
Do you have more tools than your local building store? A work bench should have a large enough tabletop to hold various saws, sanders, and other power tools for easy access. Installing wall cabinets and shelves either above or beside the workbench will greatly alleviate your organization task. Check out the myriad of options available, from open wooden shelving to stainless steel cabinets especially designed for garage wear and tear. They should give you ample space to store tools, manage all the hardware that comes with home improvement, and tuck away any work in progress. Some garage workbench designs actually incorporate a built-in cabinet system which is very practical when attached to the garage wall. If you find the surface area of your workbench insufficient, consider setting up a supplementary table top elsewhere in the garage.
A workbench should be higher than a desk, as you must be able to stand and work comfortably, with your arms bent at the right angle. Some experts suggest that the table tops height should be at the level of your navel or at the crease of your wrist. Others find it more comfortable and usable at a higher level. If you want extra work room and support, consider the height of your table saw and place both together as a unit. You can set up a prototype bench by placing a sheet of plywood on some blocks in order to determine which height works best for you.
