You could expend the time and energy to build your own workbench for your garage, but honestly when the quality and craftsmanship from purchasing one guarantees you what you need – isn’t that the smarter and easier way to go?
When you are ready to purchase a workbench, it’s best to start with the basics. What is the size of your room? The available workspace will determine whether you need a bench that is collapsible or not for optimum efficiency of space, as well as what choices you will make between cabinets and drawers or even storage space underneath the bench. A second question that can easily be overlooked is where are the outlets in your garage? You want to make sure you aren’t stretching power tool cords and that you won’t have to rearrange your plan once your bench has arrived. Simple considerations and planning in the beginning help you make the right investment and utilize your space to the best of your ability.
Once you have a size and style in mind you can start thinking about specific details. Our Geneva bench has the option of wheels for example, so you can move your workbench easily around your space without worrying about damaging your garage or your tools. Additional cabinet options above your bench can also streamline your organization so the tools you use most are out within reach and everything else is safely tucked away. These are two great options if you share the garage with your family or other uses.
Quality of manufacturing as well as what materials your workbench is made of shouldn’t be overlooked either. If you are seeking a workbench that will stand the test of time and a wide variety of heavy uses, it makes sense to have your workbench made from steel and other quality materials. That might mean more of an investment up front but will pay off when your bench holds up for longer and survives wear and tear whether that is your projects, family use or just time. You will be glad you didn’t skimp or build a cheap one yourself. Especially if your garage has several functions, safety and quality guarantee that everyone will be happy with what is in the room.
If you are looking for additional organization tips once you have the bench, consider keeping your smaller tools above the bench or in a portable toolbox for easy access. The tools you use most often can be kept on or in your bench while storage bins or additional cabinets can be key in storing things long term or that you only use occasionally. Upgrade your space and make it one you are thrilled to use every day.
