I built my bench using a solid core door about 2 years ago and it’s held up nicely. Earlier this year I cleaned it up and reapplied several coats of poly on it again just to keep a protective coating on it. Granted I take precautions and don’t purposely try to damage it, such as I still use a piece of scrap as a backer when drilling a hole in a project. I still need to add storage drawers underneath it and that will help with the weight of the bench, currently it moves around some when I’m hand planing.

This was after I built it.
