Finding The Best Workbench

What’s the first thing you need in a good workshop or garage? A workbench of course! You can always build a workbench (as many do) but you just won’t get that finished “look” like you’ll get by buying one. Plus, most workbenches you can buy have additional features that are harder to build yourself, like storage and drawers. They’re also great homes for bench vises and other workbench accessories.
