Opinions vary but we think the give and warmth of medium density fibreboard with a low price point offers good value and easy use.
It will depend on what you are working with, for tasks like packing and cutting out fabrics a timber or MDF worktop is great, for heavy engineering or working with hydraulic oils it is better to have a metal surface. If hygiene is a consideration, then stainless steel is the ideal surface for your workbench.
A good workbench is one that offers the best combination of features, size, and price point to fulfil all the tasks you want; you may, for example, want to move it around so castors are ideal. For packing parcels in cartons, a dispenser roll holder for bubble wrap is a great help; for more guidance please see our blog post.
We feel that the best woodworking bench would typically have an undershelf on which to store materials, fixings, and hand or power tools. There are some advantages of the bench being compact in dimensions and having wheels that can be braked, we also however offering fixing plates on legs to bolt down your workstation if desired.
In terms of timber tops an MDF or hardwood material is tough, but the hardest wearing benchtop will be mild or stainless steel. In some cases, galvanising with zinc is offered on top of mild steel for corrosion resistance. Another way to make your workbench top last longer is to protect it with a cutting mat.
Choosing a workbench is not easy with so many options. We suggest considering factors like delivery timescales, appropriate size and work surface materials, accessories like castors, and price point are probably the leading considerations.
As most users of benches or workstations will be standing or seated on high stools the best height is normally 900mm off the floor. With our height adjustable work benches the working surface height can be adjusted from 900 to 1100mm.
Yes we do offer non standard sizes depending on volumes required.
