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.
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.
If there is one place in the house that is most suited for your craftsmanship it would be the garage. Some people opt for the basement but not all houses have that extra room. A garage is a more common part and it is where dirty jobs can be done simply because it does not need to be kept so clean all the time as compared to the other areas. Despite that you still need something to help you in order to make your job less stressful such as a garage workbench. Ideas and suggestions on the things to consider when choosing one are listed below to help you find the perfect furniture for the space you have.
Every work area needs a pegboard that will accommodate a variety of things from tools and cords to tapes and work aprons. Be sure to install your garage workbench against a wall that leaves you enough room for a good-sized pegboard. If necessary supplement with additional boards elsewhere in the garage. Some workbenches are available with a built-in pegboard often located along the back of the bench.
