This is my workbench. It’s two pieces of 62”x24”x3/4” MDF, glued and screw’d (clearance holes and counter sinks on lower slab).
You can see the 1” margin around the sides, then 6” grid w/ screws at intersection of gridlines. The gridlines serve only to make the screw locations easily known after flipping and mounting. Thataway I can drill bench dog holes w/o having to figure out where screws are.
I have also mounted a wood vice and put in a lower shelf from my leftover MDF. Not pictured is the holes I drilled in the vice jaw and on the right side of the table for the Kreg bench dogs I picked up.
The frame is made with 2×4s and 4×4s w/ threaded rod through the stretchers/legs and dowels at each joint.
There are grooves/dados on all stretchers near the inside-top and I’ve used S-Clips to mount the table top and the lower shelf.
Here are the plans I used and the video I followed:
Shop’s coming along! Awwww, yeeeaaahh
