Just a simple work bench built out of 2×4’s, MDF, and a piece of hardboard.

Very similar to my workbench. Mine is against a garage wall with peg board behind it. I drop a lot of stuff behind it and can’t reach it. Looks like you won’t have that problem. Looks good and functional.

That is similar in construction to my bench as well. I might have to copy your design for my next bench. Great job.

David,

This is a nice bench. It was a good idea to put a replaceable top of hardboard on it and including clamp storage on it keeps them at hand when needed.

Nice post.

It may be simple, but as along as it works, it’s great.

I like this. I think I’ll make one for myself.

looks like it should get the job done.
I like the clamp holder you’ve got on the end.
