Here is the workbench I built a few years back to replace the one in the last picture. It is made out of oak plywood and oak hardwood with a replaceable hardboard work surface and a Jorgensen vise. It has plenty of storage- 4 drawers and 4 doors with full pull-out shelves that house my Delta planer (soon to be replaced by a Dewalt!), Rigid sander, air compressor and other stuff. I am able to store other tools in the space underneath the bench top- cases for my electric drill, jig saw, rotary hammer, etc. It has served me well so far. Thanks for looking!

I like looking at work benches and thinking about how I would build mine. Until I remember that if I had a bigger work bench I would just cover all but 3 square feet of it with scraps, hardware, used rags, and stray tools. But yours sure looks nice.

A lot of smart things going on there ravensrock. I like the undershelf- I’d keep my tools plugged in right there. And the pullout shelves save your back. btw- I just put new bearings in my Delta planer and it’s ready for 25 more years of abuse.
