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.
Worktop surfaces come in many material and designs. Depending on the intended use one material may be more suitable than another. Common materials are steel, wood, solid plastic, plastic laminate, and others. Steel worktops are typical for heavy duty use. They will not become oil soaked or crack and are extremely tough. Mechanics and small engine repair shops favor this material as well as welders who might damage other work top surfaces. Disadvantages are scratching or denting if they are hit sufficiently hard. Wood tops can be made of solid hardwood like maple or made of plywood, MDF or other manufactured wood material. Hardwood worktops resist damage by sharp tools and hard blows, and is ideal for tool and die work, electrical wiring, fabric cutting and is favored by woodworkers.
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.
