Reclaimed 2×4’s and plywood. The sawdust was from milking the legs and supports to square and parallel 1-1/4×3-1/4. The half laps for the joinery.

Looks like a good platform, do you plan any cabinets, or doors, and drawers anywhere on it?

A door on the short side. And pegboard on the wall with shelves and wall cabinets. Probably a drawer or two on the long side. Depends on what they put on the bottom. It was dimensioned to fit the reclaimed lumber at hand

It is functional wide open, but you will find over time even in the presence of awesome dust collection the open shelves fill up with dust, junk, small animals, and all manner of stuff you may not want in. It is a big project to do it all at once. Years ago I started with an open frame like yours, and did a door about every month or 3. Didn’t take that long to close it in.

When we sold the wife loved the kitchen, and the guy was writing a check as soon as he saw the shop area, evidently she approved of the no clutter look in the shop, even though it was a detached building. So in a sense it helped sell the place.
