In this video I show you my preferred method of building a simple yet strong, cost effective workbench using Simpson Strong-Ties to hold it all together. This particular bench is five feet wide, two feet deep and forty-six inches tall. I decided to have this custom diy workbench at belly button height which for me was 46" tall. This is a very simple workbench that is easy and quick to build and I hope this video helps to inspire you to build your own! You'll need: 1 Sheet of 3/4" plywood (Cut at Home Depot) 7 2x4's 8ft long 8 Simpson Strong-Tie brackets 1 box of 100 Simpson screws 24 2" screws for the top and shelf.

With larger screws and some glue or adhesive,you don’t really need the strong ties. That would save some dollars.Plywood is the better choice over OSB. Great video for a fast and economical work bench.

Strange coincidence this came out the weekend after I just built some shelves for ~$100. Mine are 2' deep by 8' long and have 4 shelves going right up to the ceiling. If you use decking screws to screw your shelves to the legs and get some cheaper material (OSB, particle board, MDF, etc...) for the surface, that'll cut way down on cost.

If you use framing nails it will be even cheaper. Nails have more shear strength than a deck screw and are likely a better choice for something load bearing.

You can't get much cheaper than that for a legitimate workbench that looks cool to boot

Should be 42 inches high, probably
1 Road (16 days ago)
The beauty of it is if I need to reduce the height it's as easy as just chopping a few inches off the legs. Also, I'm 6'3" tall
