Height Adjustable Garage Workbenches for the Contemporary Garage
Heroic home construction and craftsman projects have always begun in the garage. It’s the weekend warrior and gear head’s domain, and getting the setting right makes all the difference. If your garage workbench isn’t comfortable, large enough, and effective, you will find excuses to avoid otherwise awesome projects in the garage, so this piece of furniture and the space around it should be your two top priorities if you want to start getting more done in the garage and wielding awesome power tools like a boss. A height adjustable standing desk can make the perfect foundation for this improved workstation.
What are the most important features of garage workbenches and work area? Start with the basics. You need enough space to work safely without bumping into things. You need enough storage to keep your tools and such organized so you can find them and so they aren’t in the way while you work. The workbench needs to be at the right height so you can stand at it and work comfortably. And it needs to be sturdy enough and durable enough for you to work without worrying about breaking it or injuring yourself due to motion or damage.
You have a few options for workbenches that meet these criteria. The first is to build one yourself using any of the many free plans available online. With a bit of planning and a small investment you can have a no-frills, highly functional garage workbench. Or you could buy one. They range in price, function, and fanciness from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands depending on what you want.
But there’s another option worth considering. Get an adjustable height work table to use as your garage workbench. There are two specific reasons why this might be a better choice than the others. First, it ensures that the table is always at the perfect height for your needs and the job you’re doing. This makes it easier to change between projects, from detailed hand carving where you have to bend over, to heavy etching for which you will need the support of your body weight, to sawing on a table saw where you may need a raised bench. No matter what, it will always be the right height for comfort and effectiveness.
Second, it gives you more flexibility to meet the other requirements of your garage workspace, because adjustable height work tables are more flexible. Greater flexibility makes it easier to find room for storage so your space is organized.
If you want to be a weekend hero and get things done in the garage, you need to create a workspace that you find easy to use and enjoyable. Comfort and effectiveness are essential. Adjustable height garage workbenches that look great and stand up to heavy use deliver all these features and make creating an entire workspace that you love easier so you can get on with it and build your home everything it needs. You may also purchase a height adjustable standing workbench base by itself and add any top you may choose to use. Some customers have even used old doors for a surface that is both large and inexpensive.
