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.
Workbenches in their basic form consist of a worktop surface and support legs. Two saw horses with a sheet of plywood laid across them can be defined as a workbench. This design may be suitable for laying out drawings or holding a few tools, however without additional support it will not provide much more in the way of functionality or utility. Basic workbench design should include additional support structures and a strong worktop surface that will increase the load capacity of the workbench. The design may include support stringers, lower shelves, drawers, back and end stops, risers or any number of additional, specialty attachments.
Shelving units in their basic form consist of a frame and decking material. The frame can be constructed out of a variety of materials with the most common being steel sheet. 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+ material called foil and thicker 8+ material called plate. The steel sheet is formed into structural members with various shapes for different applications and load carrying capacities. The capacities can range anywhere from a couple hundred pounds to 30,000 pounds or more.
