Heavy-Duty Workbench

With less than $200 and a weekend, you can build a sturdy workbench that will last you a lifetime.

A great bench has to have a number of key features. For starters, the base must be sturdy. Of course, it must have a large, flat worksurface rugged enough to stand up to years of hard use. Storage would be helpful. And to keep the cost down, it should be built out of materials that you can get anywhere. Finally, it would be great if you could put it together in a weekend. All these must-have features are built into this heavy-duty workbench and will add up to a lifetime of hard-working service.
