Just a simple 8 foot workbench with a nice shelf on the bottom. Made of 2×4’s and fiber board in 4×8 sheets. Power strip was an add on from Harbor Freight.

Nice. Looks like it would be great in a shop like mine where I store my tools under my bench. I’d like to get mine off the ground and this would work. Great job.

It turned out nice. You should get a lot of use out of it.
I think you should have figured in some overhang so you can clamp stuff.

Another option would be to drill 3/4 inch holes in the top and/or rout some openings so everyday common quick release bar clamps can fit through. Something similar to what Todd did. It would make your work much easier.
