This is a workbench I built for a friend. It has a 27” by 96” by 3” thick top with doubled 2 X 4’s for legs, so it’s plenty sturdy for his needs. He repairs small appliances and furniture for others almost nonstop.

That certianly looks beefy enough to handle just about anything. Did you laminate two staggered layers of two by fours for the top, at least it looks that way? What method did you use to flatten the top?Ron
