An Easy Way to Build a Workbench With Workbench Kits.
If you don't want to spend effort and time in building your own workbench, then buying workbench kits may be a better choice for you. There are hundreds of workbench kits out there from $50 to a few hundred dollars. Using workbench kits is a convenient way to get a sturdy workbench without getting your hands and knees on the ground nailing, drilling and sawing. You can better organize your garage and shop with just assembling workbench kits. There are many workbench kits with additional features such as a peg board, a pullout tray, shelves, and cabinets to provide ample storage space.
However, if you are a woodworking guy like me, then you wouldn't be completely satisfied with most workbench kits out there. I once spent more than $200 for workbench kits, and it didn't meet the expectations I have for a good workbench. First of all, you have a limited number of choices. No choice over looks, design, size and wood, etc. make you feel like you have to adjust your work to the workbench, instead of having a workbench that fits your needs. Don't expect this workbench to be your ultimate workbench because they will only satisfy your basic needs. Second, it is not at all difficult to make your own workbench. Sure, it is a big project and a time-consuming process. But, building your own is a good hobby, fun, and a rewarding experience. I enjoy my workbench not only when I'm working on it, but also when I stand back and look at what I have accomplished. It is the light of my garage.
I highly recommend you to try building your own workbench that fits your own needs. It really isn't all that hard, and you'll be on your way in no time with the following resource links.
