I always feel like I just won the lottery when I acquire something for free. This is probably the nicest free thing I have ever snagged. It is made by ULINE and is a solid butcher block top with metal frame workbench. I really like the adjustable height. I am taller than most and develop back pain when working on normal counter height benches or surfaces. With the optional drawer these things retail for over $400 brand new! It is 60” long and 30” deep which is a great size for my shop. For now it is my bench of choice until I feel brave enough to build a workbench like His Normness would build. I don’t have a picture yet, but I just purchased an inexpensive light duty wood vise to go on one side as well.
