When it comes to your home garage, there is an unlimited number of things you can do to improve it. The important thing is to not get overwhelmed. Break it down into small jobs that you can work on here and there. Take your time and have fun with it. If you dread it, you probably won’t do it. Look forward to the big picture, but slowly take one step at a time. When you slow down and take a look around, chances are you’ll come up with plenty of ideas to better utilize your garage. Before you know it, your garage will be more useful and practical than you ever imagined!
You can utilize your workbench to finish your garage. Insulating and dry walling your garage will help keep it measurably warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. If you have any attic space in your garage, you can put some plywood up there to create a significant amount of available storage space. Then, dry wall the bottom of the trusses and install a hinged access door about 2 and a half feet wide and 6 feet long to get all of your things in and out of your new storage space. You can also protect your garage floor from automotive fluids and winter slush with a floor covering such as paint, epoxy, or garage floor tiles.
A common material for pre-manufactured workbench legs and supports is steel sheet. As we discussed in our previous article "A Handy Guide on Shelving Systems for the Home Garage and Workplace", the thickness of sheet metal is called its gauge and the lower its gauge number is, the thicker the steel is. Steel sheet ranges from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge, with thinner 30+ gauge material called foil and thicker 8 gauge or less material called plate. Typical workbench supports range from around 12 to 16 gauge. Stringers and lower shelves add stability and strength to the legs and allow for heavier loads to be applied. They do this by connecting the legs together below the worktop and forming a rigid structure that helps support itself. Without additional support the workbench legs would easily fold under and collapse when weight is applied. The design may favor stringers alone if the workbench is intended to be used while sitting, allowing for the person’s legs to extend under the worktop. Lower shelves may also be incorporated into the design for storage below the worktop surface, and may be partial or full sized shelves depending on its use. Though load carrying capacities are frequently not listed on workbenches, a general rule of thumb is to use a thicker gauge steel support structure for heavier duty workbench applications.
