I made this work bench for my garage. Over a few weekends. It is 11' 6' long and is made of pine lumber. I used 2x10x12's on the top, mostly 2x4's are used for the farm with the exception of the center part of the legs. Those are rough cut 4x4's I had laying around. 1x6's for the bottom shelf. Getting the top seams to line up took a lot of sanding with 40 grit. They were to big for me to run through the table saw myself so I sanded and sanded. I did run skews threw the top and then filled with wood filler. I wanted strength. Plus the top boards are not glued so I can replace as needed (It's a work bench right?). This thing is big, heavy, and solid!
