I have been in a new house for two years working off of fold up tables and whatever I could turn into a flat suraface so needed a workbench badly. I made this L shaped workbench from modifying a Family Handyman plan. It’s attached to the poured concrete basement walls which allows for easy cleaning below, and roll my tool cabinets underneath for storage. The top is two layers of plywood with a hardboard top that can be changed out when worn to the point of no return. The curved supports are also covered with hardboard strips.

Thanks for looking…...

Cool bench and I like the design of the supports. This should give you some good work surface now.

Nice bench, and I like the idea of having it open underneth for easy cleaning. This gives me another idea for countertops that I need to build soon for my garage. Enjoy!

Should serve you well – easy cleaning underneath.

sounds great!! Roll away the cabinets so they are out sight, giving lots of extra floor space and thus work space.
