Default New Work Bench

This is a new work bench that I finished yesterday. I am going to build another one just like it for the other side of my shop. That one will be used mainly for putting the pens together and I will probably move my band saw to that one as well. It is 8 foot long 24 inches wide and about 36 inches to the top of the flat part of the bench. The back part is 32 inches tall. The peg board is 2 foot tall with an 8 inch shelving board at the bottom of it, in which I mounted a power strip to.

Nice looking bench, looks fully functional. Looks like all the turning tools are easy to get to when needed, even the hammmer and level[?][;)][:D]

Have you looked in Home Depot?
I've seen one like this at my local BORG.

Home depot is exactly where I purchased the kit for this. It was $24.89 and it came with the brackets, 200 screws and the plans for this bench. It can be made to a 4', 6' or 8' length. Mine is 8'. Thanks for all of the wonderful comments.
