If your house and garage are attached your choice in placement may be limited. Putting the garage workbench against a shared wall is a good idea for ease of electrical outlet installation. It will also be the area to give you the most warmth during cold months. Some insulation for sound should be considered so the folks in the house are not bothered by the noise. If your garage stands alone you may find it easier to select an area. Ideally place your garage workbench along a bare wall in order to have plenty of room for cabinets and shelves on one or both sides of the workbench. By positioning your workbench on the opposite wall of a window you will be provided with the most natural light.
Various workbench kits are available on the market. Choose the one that best suits your needs. Consider a heavy duty stainless steel garage workbench if you expect to use it often and want extra durability. Be sure to have all of the right tools on hand to assemble it and if necessary shop for some new ones! You will most likely want more handy tools for your new work space. Note that some essential hardware may not be included in your kit.

A common material for pre-manufactured workbench legs and supports is steel sheet. As we discussed in our previous article "A Handy Guide on Shelving Systems for the Home Garage and Workplace" the thickness of sheet metal is called its gauge and the lower its gauge number is the thicker the steel is. Steel sheet ranges from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge with thinner 30+ gauge material called foil and thicker 8 gauge or less material called plate. Typical workbench supports range from around 12 to 16 gauge. Stringers and lower shelves add stability and strength to the legs and allow for heavier loads to be applied.
