This workbench was my first table-related project. I made it after realizing I needed a proper surface upon which to fabricate items and other projects, without worry of damaging the working surface. This workbench was mostly based on the English Joiners bench. A great visual aid to recreate the workbench can be found at Rex Kruger's youtube channel -- Here is the link to the tutorial:

Most of the larger lumber (4x4's and 10x2's) I had cut at Home Depot since I wasn't in the mood of hand sawing it all down, and I knew I wasn't the best at measuring and cutting evenly as well.

I made sure they were level, then cut and placed the half-lap joints across the 4x4's.

Cut out portions of the 2x4's to create the half-lap joints which were glued and screwed to the 4x4 legs.

Notice I fastened them to the pillars in opposite directions.

2x4's were glued together with big clamps a few at a time, before connecting them all together for a final glue down.

2x10 side aprons were cut in the middle portion to hold supporting 'beams' then fastened to each pair of pillars while the tabletop glue dried.

The side aprons were used to cut out the supporting beams to lay within the notches in the aprons.

Everything fit together pretty well. Not pictured was using a hand plane to level the supporting beam boards.

I used a hand plane to level the tabletop before fastening to the bench.

The last step was drilling and attaching carriage bolts between each 4x4 pillar and apron. Someday I'll add another one under each current bolt.

It made for a great standing desk while working outside during fair weather spring days in some shade. I made the workbench taller than the average workbench so that I wouldn't have to bend at the back as much while working on the tabletop. The height makes more prone to rocking, but there are solutions to that issue to be considered.
