I am by no means a craftsman like many people on here, and like you Sandra I was in need of a solid place to work off of. On the other hand, I could think of many other things I wanted to do with $900 than spend it on a bench, and one that I didnt build at that. I found some plans for a cheap, but well built workbench on Fine Woodworking’s site. It doesnt take a master woodworker to build, doesnt break the bank, and still offers a nice flat stable work area to work off of. All in all with a vice and some upgrades, I have $200 in a bench that will last me a while, and that I can one day build the bench worth paying a grand for. Ill take some pictures when I am done and post them. I am in the process now of building a cabinet underneath it with some old recycled wood. (I like to practice on free stuff). Anyway, here is the basic plan.


-- I almost post pics....until I see the daily top three...then I delete my post.
