I like the simple design.

Add some task lighting under the shelf and a power bar and you are all set to go.

Looks like one of my first workbenches. Worked for years before I built a new one with more storage. Great job.

I’m the echo of mranum…mine is cobbled together…things added when needed…and you’ve had a great start that will be very useful.

Simple, yet elegant. Efficient, practical, and useful. Pretty close to perfection if you ask me.
