OK, this is nothing fancy, but it's my 3rd project and I am pleased with how it came out. It's all made from 2x4" pine, CDX plywood, and MDF. It's finished with a few coats of spar varnish.

Sturdy looking bench. Great job. Now all you need are some good nicks, dings and paint spatters on it to make it looked used.

I definitely endorse the act of building your own workbench. Nice job.

I built one the same size and added locking swivel casters aand couple of drawers and peg board on the ends. I use my one car garage as a woodshop so I have to pulll the wife's car out and roll out my machines as needed so I needed everything Mobile,

I have the shared garage space situation too, so I completely understand the caster situation. I put the workbench up against the wall.

And you will all be happy to know it has more than a few nicks and dings in it now :)
