Thread: Work bench?

  1. #1

    Work bench?

    After moving into new house two months ago I finally pulled my escort rs turbo into the garage. Its a small single car garage but have some space in the corner for a small work bench to hold my vice. I have about 1m of wall to use. So Im wondering what people are doing for work benches/tables? Buying them? Making them?

    You can get stainless units for that, or use a kitchen counter as they are strong.

    I think most others will be too big for a single car garage.

    Stainless stuff can be thin and so unless you get the right type it might not last the vise. The kitchen counter will be cheap or free.

    It would be handy enough to knock one up yourself. Go into a kitchen supply place and see if they have any off cuts or ends of counter they won't be using. I bought a metre section for about €20 I think a few years back. If you search for garage work bench plans you will find loads of easy enough stuff.

    My Dad made one for me out of timber he had lying around. And it gave him something to do. The thing is indestructible!

    I made mine from 2x4s which were left over from shuttering the shed base. But they are cheap anyway. Topped with inch marine ply. I can't find the exact plans I used but its similar to this

    Ensure that you mock it up a little bit to see what height and depth works for you.
    I added more screws and some extra braces and its very solid.
