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.
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.
