Extremely well made and sturdy, beautiful top! We bought this and one with the shelf. Couple complaints...not enough lag screws are provided. There are holes for 16 screws on each side but only 8 screws total are provided. Thankfully, they seem to be enough. If you buy the one with the shelf, not all the screws will line up correctly so even though there should be 4 screws holding each side on, only 2 will fit and you would need to drill through the steel to correct if desired...we just went with 2 screws on each side. There are plenty of screws for part of the assembly provided, we ended up with a couple bags extra for each workbench. These weren't deal breaker issues for us. We bought 3 then purchased 2 more. They are functional and attractive, well suited for our manufacturing area.
This is a super solid workbench. I also purchased a sheet of 5/8" sanded plywood for the top to finish it off, and if you cut that a couple inches long, it can serve as a customizable, hole-thru rack for screw-drivers, pry-bars or whatever tools you like to keep at an arms reach (i did not but wish i did.) IMO - Build shelves over your work bench, a shelf under the bench compromises a lot of good storage space. Great workbench, good deal, recommend, look forward to using this a lot for a long time to come.
