This was pretty basic and easy, which is why I chose it as a beginner. Took about 4 hours with three guys and this was very cheap.

Nice bench! As with any bench, the biggest challenge might be keeping it free of clutter.

Our benches seem to have their own gravitational field which attracts all forms of matter.

I’m working on the exact same build. It has taken me far longer but I have zero help and zero experience. the next chance I get I’ll be attaching the lower shelf and the work surfaces.

I too like the addition of the light. Can’t have too much light.
