Workbenches

A workbench can improve your productivity and safety while you’re on the job, but you should find a style (such as a fixed-leg or adjustable-height metal workbench) that will meet your specific needs. You can even find preconfigured workbench kits, which can include the following:
  • Workbench tops
  • Workbench legs
  • Workbench stringers
The most critical step in finding the right metal workbench is to know what kind of work you will need it for, so you should ask yourself the following questions:
  • Does it need to be against the wall?
  • Do I need to access all sides of the garage workbench?
  • Does it need casters for storage and mobility?
  • Do I need shelves or drawers for storage?
Once you answer these questions, you will have a clearer picture of what you'll need. Take some time to plan everything, because you don’t want to get a workbench to find out that it wasn’t what you wanted. You also want to think about its size, which will typically fall within the following standards:
  • 28-36 inches for depth.
  • 48-96 inches for width.
  • 28-38 inches for height.
These dimensions aren’t determined precisely because it will depend on your specific space, but you also want to think about comfort. Most people are fine with the standard height for a metal workbench, which will work if you’re of average height. But if you don’t choose carefully, you could start to feel pain in your back or hands (which is something you definitely don’t want). Your goal should be to find a workbench that will give you the most amount of comfort possible, because you'll put less strain on your body.
