If space is an issue a fold-up garage workbench takes up little room when not in use. They are often designed with cabinet space to hang tools and hardware and the hinged bench folds into that space with its legs tucked under. When you need to work simply unfold the top prop up the legs and get to it. Select one with a leg system that is sturdy enough for your needs. Make sure to allow adequate space to work in when the bench is laid out.
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.
Selecting the right top for your garage or basement workbench starts by knowing how you want to use it and the type of work you will do. In addition knowing how you will be using the workbench will help you determine the type of storage that is required. For automotive and related uses consider a laminate top or stainless steel for ease of maintenance durability and overall appearance. If you are a do it your self kind of person who likes to do home repairs and refinish furniture? A workbench with a maple butcher-block top even 16-gauge steel will provide very low maintenance and have extremely smooth non-sticking surfaces. What you decide should be unique to you and reflect how you will use the workbench.
Workbench size height and mobility are also very important and vary by application. Sail makers may require very large work surfaces to spread out fabrics while jewelers and electronics repair shops may prefer smaller work tops for easy tool and parts access. The height also is important when choosing a design. Workbenches designed for standing work in general are higher than those intended for sitting. The worktop height is also dependent on the workers individual height. Many designs incorporate adjustable legs allowing for multiple heights application types and for leveling the worktop over uneven surfaces. For some applications mobility may be required so casters are installed allowing the workbench to be moved around. The best approach is to get a workbench that is sufficiently large for your needs has adjustable height for experimentation and is on casters if mobility is required for your specific application.
