I’ve seen benches built that provisioned a torsion-box style of lower shelf that allowed for sand to be filled in to add weight. Are you thinking Roubo, Chris, or some other style? An english workbench isn’t as heavy, but is certainly geared towards hand work. It’s dimension SYP, too, available at the BORG depending on where you are.
