There are lots of ways to build workbenches for under $600. I won’t say mine is best or even for everyone but it is a very heavy rigid bench with lots of clamping capacity without requiring advanced joinery or expensive hardware. I’ve been using it for a few years now and still love it.!

At today’s prices … maybe $200? Shop-built from the ground up … she does just about everything one could ask …

The obvious suggestion is to buy less than $600 worth of lumber!

Seriously though, to be able to put your hands on something you have made like a workbench is an ethereal connection, try it out.
