Worktop surfaces come in many material and designs. Depending on the intended use one material may be more suitable than another. Common materials are steel, wood, solid plastic, plastic laminate, and others. Steel worktops are typical for heavy duty use. They will not become oil soaked or crack and are extremely tough. Mechanics and small engine repair shops favor this material as well as welders who might damage other work top surfaces. Disadvantages are scratching or denting if they are hit sufficiently hard. Wood tops can be made of solid hardwood like maple or made of plywood, MDF or other manufactured wood material. Hardwood worktops resist damage by sharp tools and hard blows, and is ideal for tool and die work, electrical wiring, fabric cutting and is favored by woodworkers. The drawback is once damaged it may be expensive to replace. Manufactured work surfaces like MDF or particleboard is the preferred surface for industry. They are warp and splinter proof and are highly resistant to oil and moisture. They are also less expensive than hardwood and can be easily replaced if damaged. Plastic worktops provide strength, chemical resistance, and are non-conductive. Plastic is great for electronics assembly, circuit board repair or any application that may be prone to spills. However plastic may be too slippery for woodworking and favor applications like ceramics work, pottery or anything that requires moisture or chemical resistance.

Pegboard Pegboard is nothing new to home garages. However, there are plenty of modern innovative shelves, hooks, bins, and containers that fit into pegboard. You can find these items at any home improvement center. You can use them for lawn and garden tools, household hardware, winter clothing, hand tools, etc. Pegboard is the most versatile type of organizer you can use. Basic pegboard is a little flimsy, but you can make it stronger by adding more supports when you mount it. You can also paint it to fit the theme of your garage. There are also other types of pegboard such as plastic and metal, which are available in different colors. Of course, they’re a little more expensive, but they’re also stronger, so you can use them to hold heavier items. No matter which type of pegboard you use, it’ll help you control clutter which is one of the most common problems in residential garages.
