Assembly is incredibly easy, thanks to the included, easy-to-follow instructions and cut lists. All you need is a powered screwdriver and a saw--no other tools are necessary.

Last year I purchased the 2x4 basics model 14429 Workbench from Amazon. After obtaining the necessary wood and putting it together, I liked it so much I bought another workbench. I then posted my detailed review for the model 14429.

Recently I decided to buy yet another 2x4 Basics workbench. The 14429 was no longer available from Amazon. Instead, this 'new model' 90164 was offered by Amazon. I purchased it.

I have no idea what the difference is. It is the exact same workbench as the earlier model.

As I noted in my other review you are purchasing the hardware (the four legs, which are a very heavy grade plastic, wood screws, hooks and clamps). You must obtain your own wood (to make my 6 foot by 2 foot workbench I bought seven 96-inch long 2 x 4s, plus three 6-foot by 2-foot boards that serve as the bottom, middle and top counters). Simply cut your 2 x 4s to the proper length (for a workbench that is six feet long and two feet wide, you will need six 2/4s that are 72 inches long, six 2 x 4s that are 21 inches long, and one 2x4 that is 71 7/8ths inches long). If you go to the page for the older model and go through the pictures supplied by reviewers you will find a scan of the size wood you will need for various size workbenches you may wish to build.

The instructions are very simple and consist of pictures (no words). The pictures simply show the sequence for putting the workbench together. You will need your power screwdrive with a Phillips tip. I put the first two workbenches together by myself, while my wife helped with the third one (having an extra person is very helpful although not essential).

The result is a very, very sturdy workbench. Place your various machines (meter saw, band saw, what have you) on top with confidence.

I got this workbench to put my miter saw on. It came quickly (within 2 business days after ordering with super saver shipping) and arrived in good shape.

I had sawn the lumber to size the day before using the chart on the manufacturers website for the size I wanted (2x4 feet) and when the package arrived all I had to do was assemble it with the screws provided. No problems there, I could do it by myself, screws held the pieces of lumber with no problems. I read some reviews that the provided screws were crummy but I didn't experience this. I didn't even predrill the holes and the screws grabbed and tightened with no problem. If you're on your own I recommend positioning and holding the pieces of lumber to the legs with clamps while you are power driving the screws so that you're sure it is reasonably straight and level. It took me no more than an hour to put the whole thing together.

Stands like a rock. I didn't use the shelf brackets yet as I am going to move this to another location soon. Can't go wrong for $65 plus lumber (I used three 8 ft 2x4's and 2 sheets of 2x4 ft 1/2 inch plywood, grandtotal under $40 for the lumber. Will buy another kit to assemble a workbench after we move. Might also use this for a cutting table for my sewing room after we move. Is exactly the correct hight for that.

Whole heartedly recommend this product.

This quality product makes creating your own custom bench a snap. Total build time, by myself, was about 30 minutes with pre-cut lumber. Sure it costs a little more than making your own legs but I don't have wood working clamps so the price difference was a wash for me. Plus with the shelves built in to hold the 2x4's it was much easier. It is also much cheaper than buying a bench from a brick and mortar store.
I use this bench mainly for a reloading press but I also have a vice mounted and I haven't had any issues with either. The best part is that if you want to change the size of your bench at a later date it's a quick tear down and rebuild. Because of which, if you are undecided on bench size, cut your lumber for the larger size and see if it works. Modifying for the smaller size is easy if it's too big.
Overall I'm very impressed with this product. It comes with some hangers and clamps that I haven't used but I'm sure would work. Not that fancy but they aren't meant to be.

The parts of this kit are fairly well made (see my updated note at the end though!) and with sturdy, heavy-duty plastic legs. It was also pretty easy to assemble (although I definitely recommend 2 people minimum!). No pre-drilling is required (except for installing the clamp on the side). I built a relatively smaller sized one (5'X2' table top) but it's plenty big for what I need.

While the instructions only tell you how to make the normal 3 shelf workbench, this kit does allow you to customize it somewhat. I customized the middle shelf a little by making it stop about 2/3rds the way to the end to leave room for storage of larger items on the bottom shelf. I then put an extra 2X4 leg down the front of the bench to attach the middle shelf to for support.

The final product looks great and is really sturdy, and was pretty easy to build. I would highly recommend 2+ people, however, and if you have your own table saw etc. (instead of having to make 7 trips to local hardware store to cut it for you) it would also help speed things up. Amazon's also got a better price by about $30 than any other place I found this kit. If you don't mind doing it yourself, this kit is pretty nice!

Make sure to check out the price of lumber at your hardware store first so you know how much the total assembled bench will cost you. I spent slightly more just on lumber than the actual cost of the kit, but that can vary of course depending on what material you use for the table top, how large of a work bench you want, etc.

Originally I had rated this kit a solid 5 stars but have to lower it substantially now due to the fact that only three months after assembling it there is a crack on the corner of the plastic leg!
