Maple workbench tops lead the crowd as a top choice of homeowners because they look great and are tough enough to withstand years of abuse and still survive. Maple butcher-block tops are made of compressed strips of hard maple glued together in the required size and finished with a smooth nonporous low maintenance acrylic finish that enhances the natural wood color. Maple butcher-block bench tops are available online and from your local garage remodeling companies. Workbench tops are made in standard sizes or they can be designed and created to your custom size requirements.
Every work area needs a pegboard that will accommodate a variety of things from tools and cords to tapes and work aprons. Be sure to install your garage workbench against a wall that leaves you enough room for a good-sized pegboard. If necessary supplement with additional boards elsewhere in the garage. Some workbenches are available with a built-in pegboard often located along the back of the bench.
