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.
Building your own workbench gives good practice when handling more complicated projects. Since a workbench is not a decorative piece of furniture finish and perfection are not required. Another advantage to building your own is that standard pre-fabricated workbenches available for purchase are mass produced in sizes that might not fit the space you have available. By building your own garage workbench you can decide on the particular specifications for every aspect of the bench. Every feature has a purpose and no space is wasted. If youre building from scratch or using someone elses blueprints modified or not youve got a sturdy piece of garage equipment that will easily surpass the quality of any mass produced once size fits all workbench for purchase.
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.
Having your own work area in the garage is a very important need for a woodworker or DIY expert especially if you take on several projects. There is a need for a solid woodworking table where you can place your crafts and the items that you are repairing. Some garage workbenches are more expensive than others but it doesnt mean the more expensive a workbench is the sturdier it is. Cost doesnt equate to quality and you need to make sure you are getting the best value for your money. You can even look for workbenches used by previous owners. These perhaps are more durable than some new ones since they have already been broken in and tested by the previous owner assuring you that it will withstand pressure and heavy use once you start on your projects.
