You garage workbench will be more durable if you construct it with wood screws and bolts instead of nails which tend to work loose after a while and a wobbly workbench is not a safe carpentry setting. A very basic workbench consists of a wooden plank sized for your needs and Four evenly-cut two-by-fours which will be its legs. You can cut the legs to whatever length places the surface of the garage workbench at a comfortable height; a thirty-one inch high workbench work well for most people.
Workbenches in their basic form consist of a worktop surface and support legs. Two saw horses with a sheet of plywood laid across them can be defined as a workbench. This design may be suitable for laying out drawings or holding a few tools however without additional support it will not provide much more in the way of functionality or utility. Basic workbench design should include additional support structures and a strong worktop surface that will increase the load capacity of the workbench. The design may include support stringers lower shelves drawers back and end stops risers or any number of additional specialty attachments.
If you want something a little fancier and dont have the time required to put together a garage workbench with shelving or drawers you can by a light industrial garage work bench for less than $100. An industrial garage workbench is usually constructed with a steel frame and laminated wood bench top. Different models of this type of garage workbench will have drawers or cabinets or even a pegboard back on which you can hang your tools.
If youre a handyman you need a workbench in the garage. A real handyman can build one if room is available and the workbench is the essential first step before true creativeness of an inventor or handyman can be let loose. Prior to beginning building of the workbench accurate measurements of the space available are needed. This ensures the design will fit the available space and still leave room for any cars or other items to be parked in the garage along side the workbench.
