This is my latest workbench it was built using 2×4’s, knotted pine, 3/4” birch and 1/4” luan plywood. The next step is put in some draws and mount some vises.

Very nice…the combo of painted structure and the other woods look great!

What did you use for assembling the 2×4’s and how did you attach the pine and ply panels?

Great work.

Uh-oh…now you went and done it. You made yourself a right purdy workbench. And yer gonna be to scared to use it. Ima suggestin you take a BFH (big hammer) and take a whack at it. You’ll be able to chill once that first ding is in her. If you don’t, it’ll be the purdiest furniture in your shop. You will admire it lovingly while building another project atop your sawhorse supported plywood. Haha! Seriously though, very nice bench, brother.
