I almost never leave reviews but the quality of this particular workbench has really let me down. After carrying this upstairs and opening the box I noticed an odd looking streak in the surface of the bench. I didn't think much of it until after I set up the bench. The streak appeared to be a wood filler that one would use to fill gaps in joints used on the surface of the maple top to fill in a crack or gash in the wood. Sure enough, after just a week the filler started cracking and if I tried ( I didn't) I could easily just scrape the rest out with a fingernail. I posted a picture where you can see the crack and in the middle the filler has flaked out. I had not even used the bench at all and I already had a nice size crack in it. Also, there is 6 inch section of maple that had the wood filler in it too. Not too big of a deal on the later but I expected something better for $600. I called Gladiator and they said they couldn't help me. So it goes back to Home Depot. I will try another though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tedd 8ft Bambo Gladiator workbench
Extremely heavy duty workbench was well packed for shipment & assembly was straight forward. The table is made in USA & it shows. Quality is very obvious. This 8ft model is certainly heavy so be prepared for a 2 or 3 person team to load/unload plus place into service. Adjustable height allows for placing other cabinets underneath & considering the beefy construction this one doesn't need cross or diagonal braces that would get in the way for that.
The bamboo is not only tough to beat on a workbench, it looks great.
I got lucky & caught this one on sale with free freight shipment to my nearby Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by draynimm37 Awesomeness in a work bench.
When I first setup the work bench, I thought it might be to big. But what I've discovered is that its perfect. This is my second Gladiator workbench. I sold my smaller one not to long ago for this upgrade. I think I could fit several different projects on the bench at once. Along with an assortment of tools and other clutter that always get attracted to my work bench.
Its was an easy setup and install. The legs are adjustable with no need of any tools and the feet let you level the bench perfectly. The work top is thick and solid. I like the butcher block look so much I prolly clean it more than my kitchen counter.
I'm defiantly a renewed Gladiator fan boy!

The items are great- we bought a number of the red gladiator series items and redid the entire garage. They hold a lot and look wonderful - We can now pull two cars into the garage, something we haven't been enable to do in years. The workbench is heavy and solid and has a nice work area, and it looks great!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bobk Look For A Better Alternative To This Workbench
This workbench was fine for 3 months. I put it together in my 20' x 14' shed 3 months ago. Nothing had been placed on it since we were moving and it was never used. After the 3rd month, a glue line failure occurred at the first glue line of the butcher block top in the front. It is 3 inches long now and goes all the way through the joint. I did contact the company and they did agree to replace the entire workbench. This is all good except I don't need a whole workbench and I do not want to assemble this again. There is not enough room now to lay the box flat and re-assemble a whole workbench. They would not just replace the top. They said they didn't make the top separate. This isn't true. I know they could just send a replacement top if they wanted. They wanted to send a semi-trailer truck down my street, haul out the old bench and then haul in a new, unassembled, workbench into my shed for me to re-assemble. If you get this workbench, you will see what I mean. It is very heavy and a little tedious to put together. The plastic wing nuts used to secure the legs took pliers to turn onto the bolts they were such a tight fit. Great customer service but poor remedy to their failures.

I love this table with the bamboo top. I purchased this table to use in my kitchen as a bar table. This table was not hard to put together me and my grandchildren put this together they are 17 and 14 years old. The only thing is this is a very heavy table. Over all this is an awesome table!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BB Good sturdy workbench!
Very good design in an adjustable height workbench. Instructions were clear and assembly went smooth.
The only thing I would fault is the adjustable feet were supposed to have flat spots on the bottom of the threads by the foot for an adjustable wrench to turn them, if need be. Only one of them were flattened out.
The feet will turn separately from the threads, so if it gets hard to turn them at installation, that may be a bit of a problem - I had one do that - I hit it on the bottom against the threads and that seemed to fix it so it threaded in like it was supposed to.
Ordering the power strip to add to this bench, which I wish I would have done when I ordered the bench.

The base on this is excellent, built like a tank. However the maple top is junk. Lots of big cracks and knots, some they tried to fill with some sort of epoxy, others they left as gaping holes and splits. I ordered and returned TWO of these, both had tops that were in the same poor condition. Home Depot customer service was awesome, but honestly I could have done a better job in my high school wood shop class
