I initially purchased one kit for my garage after reading the reviews. I did as someone had suggested and upgraded the long 2x4's with 4x4's and the 1/2" plywood to 3/4" plywood for the top. I did the bottom shelf as described in the directions. The top stayed very straight, even with the weight of a couple of healthy sized tool boxes and other tools, while the bottom started to sag with about half the weight. I didn't utilize the middle shelf as I had taller items I wanted to put on the bottom. When I purchased my second and third kits, used the the thicker lumber for all of the tops and shelves. One of my additional kits was built to the same specs as the first one and the other one used the middle shelf and kept the bottom open. If you have a removeable mower deck for a tractor, it will fit under the shelves, if the bottom shelf is left open. I used 2x4's on the back and sides of the bottom to keep the unit sturdy. These kits will save time and hassle over building a workbench from scratch.

I think this is a very good product and well worth the money. It is quite easy to assemble even by yourself. I did have a problem which I believe was my own fault. I transferred two tool boxes from my old workbench and then attempted to slide the new bench into position. One of the legs buckled and broke. I think I had too much weight on it to try to slide it. I did reinforce each leg with an additional 2 X 4 and it is fine. Probably contibuting to my problem was leaving the lower shelf off so I could have storage under the bench.

Basics Any Size Workbench Kit
I needed a workbench.... looked on online... & everyone wanted alot of $$$ for something that was either to big for my use or beat up!! So went to youtube for how to build your own!!! as I was watching online video how too's and Basics Anysize Kit came up.. alot of good videos on this product.. watch them.. it will give you ideas... It went together with ease.. I chose to do 6ft in length and 30"s deep.. everything was included i.e screws and inventory lisT!! I did this by myself within 2 hours.. I spent maybe $86 on the lumber.. Most $$ was the 3/4 plywood BC (sanded on one side) $ 36 that I used on top.. the bottom shelf is 3/4 ply @ $26 and I bought 11 2x4 studs.. had extra!! I already had the light.. Anyway excellent product.. comes together quick and once wood screws in it... it squared right up!! Hope this helps someone

I recently started a Firearms business and needed to get a workbench for my gunsmith work. After looking at several workbenches I decided to go with this one because of the reviews and they were spot on. The instructions were easy to follow and it went together flawlessly. It really is and awesome kit that takes a lot of the guesswork out of it. I couldn't be happier with it, I keeping peeking in to look at it all the time lol. I will be purchasing another one when I start reloading.

Great Kit for Any Shop!
The 2 x 4 Basics Workbench was a great choice for my new workshop! I purchased 2 of these kits and, with just a small amount bracing, was able to create 16' x 2' of very sturdy work space with ample storage underneath. Hardware was provided and, with a minimum number of tools, I was able to finish the project in a few hours! I would definitely recommend this product to friends will probably purchase another soon for additional space that I am building.

2x4 Basic anysize Work bench
I put this work bench up in my shed to use for a gun amunition reloading station Works great . It went up in about 15 minutes. I used 1/2 in. OSB for the top, it's approx. 5ft long by 4ft. wide, I put two shelves on top with 2x8's to hold books and bullets the top shelf is about 3 in. shorter than the middle shelf.
The only problem I have with the kit is that it does not have enough of the side vices' or hangers.
