doesn't matter as long as there is a vertical leg(s) under the wall attached 2x4.
you don't have to have a free standing work bench

bob1964 I would hope that you plate it on the outside and yes threw the brick. I have always ran a plate on the outside so that it gets spread out, bolts at top and bottom. Mortor gets dry and falls apart over time , so it's a weak point .

454 Rattler Go through the brick if at all possible . The mortar will be the weakest part of the wall.

John long As an old telephone man you will find the anchors in the brick will be stronger but MUCH harder to drill. Also, it will depend on the quality of the morter, how well they will hold.

fat tire working as a carpenter helper, I was always told to try to avoid the joints and hit the brick or block

Do I Go thru Brick or Mortar?

plan to build a work bench in my new garage. Have a brick wall that i'd like to affix a 2x4x8 to. Have the hammer drill option, plan to buy a masonry bit, and will probably use tapcon screws. Do i go thru the brick itself or mortar? I'm thinking brick. Need advice on which way to go,
