If we had to lay a quarter on the most common first-serious-project for the new Toolmonger, we’d bet on the workbench. To us they seem like an extension of ourselves — a place where we’ll spend countless hours working on other projects. While a store-bought bench can bring instant productivity — and often sturdy manufacturing techniques beyond the beginner — we almost never seem to find one set up perfectly for our workspace and needs.
But enough touchy-feelie stuff. Here’s the question: is it better to buy a workbench or to build your own? (Just to be clear, a vote for “hot” means you approve of store-bought benches, “not” means you’d rather build your own.)
