Whether you choose hardwood or sheet metal you are sure to find several ways to make your workbench more functional. To have more space in your workbench consider installing drawers and compartments into the overall design of your project. This will not only leave you with an opportunity to have a bigger working area but will also give you access to your tools should you need any of them. One of the most important factors to consider before installing a workbench in your garage is its accessibility to a power outlet. This is because you are sure to need electrical tools that can help make working on your projects easier and faster. Before building your own or buying a pre-made workbench make sure the space you plan on installing it in has easy access to a good power source.
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.
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.
These are just some garage workbench ideas that you should take in consideration if you are in the process of choosing one. Just keep in mind that you are getting this furniture because you needed something to help you out when working you have a limited space and you need something that last. If you will focus on these things when deciding you can be assured that what you will get is something that is very useful and is worth your investment.
