I can email you plans for a workbench I made that is made from 2×4 ’s, 2×6’ and either a solid wood 30”x80” door or 2 layers of 3/4” MDF or plywood. FIrst you build the functioning bench and you can easily add on drawers, vise, electrical outlet strip when you want to. Pictures, instruction, material list and cutting layout included. Let me know.
I would definitely make it mobile, so you can move it where you want to.
I am gonna make mine as John Gray suggested (same height as table saw) but I have to make a cabinet for my table saw and add wheels to get the height right.

Dust collection – not sure if I would put mine IN the floor in case something gets lodged inside of it. I would do overhead and clear if not too $$$. I am just gonna use 2” PVC with Y’s for dust ports (to minimize air restriction) not T’s .
