Wood Tools on Bench

Wood Tools on Bench

When making the decision to install a workbench you should take into account where you are going to install it, how much room you have, and what projects you hope to complete. This includes what type of tools and other materials you need to store, such as screwdrivers, nails, screws, etc. Table workbenches don’t usually have room for storage and are constructed of heavy hardwoods with sturdy legs. If you have a large amount of tools and materials that you like to have at hand, then a cabinet workbench is your best option because they have many drawers and cabinets which helps make garage storage of these items easy. Portable workbenches are good for those homeowners that only complete light duty projects or for a handyman that needs to carry his workbench with him.  There are many other types of workbenches from woodworking and metal working benches to powerstrip models, so what you choose will depend on your specific needs.

Some workbenches can be easily installed in a garage or storage shed and make for simple homeowner projects. However, if you need a workbench that has instant access to electricity, gas or water, the installation should be completed by a professional.

On this page of, review pictures of workbenches that have been installed and replaced by other homeowners and contractors. Get ideas for your own project, or share a completed project of your own.
