This is my standard methodology:
http://blog.rhysgoodwin.com/home-diy/workshop-and-workbench-update/
http://blog.rhysgoodwin.com/home-diy/milling-machine-bench-and-workshop-update/

Torsion box design is extremely strong.

For this kind of design I get my wood from Hill lumber in East Tamaki. WAY cheaper than bunnings.
Triboard for the top is excellent, bought from trademe from a place out west Auckland at very reasonable prices because the only have non-standard sizes.

My security software warns me not to visit either of these pages due to 'known harmful content'

No problem here (Win10/Chrome/Edge/IE).

 

It would be nice if security software generating (probably) false alerts could give a bit more detail about what the supposed threat is.

Tried again and the security software no longer objects ... go figure

 

Seems like a lot of effort for a work bench - unless you need a dead level surface.

That is an awesome workshop and bench.

 

And torsion boxes are cool. If it's good enough for an airplane wing, it's good enough for a bench.

I have seen it before and thought of linking it to this thread, then I thought that it may put you off as it is so good.

That's one ngarley workbench! Overall, one ngarley workshop!





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Photos of the easy design referred to above.  Workshop is a bit of tip at the moment!

Heres my bench - pardon mess

 

Its two sheets of 600mm wide particle board glued together with gorilla glue and screwed.
It has a edging and I made a box frame underneath so i dont have to have any legs in front.

Nice, thanks everyone. I have salvaged some scrap 2x4 timber from the house renovations the landlord is doing to our rental and my brother in law had a bunch of pallet wood so I am using that for the top. Will just need to sand it smooth to get rid of splinters. Will just be a freestanding bench with a vice so I can work on house and car projects. I may brace it to the wall if needed. So nice to finally have a garage again so I can have a small workshop.
