Lots of electrical cording and potential all over the place in shop full of power tools. If you're really careful and/or working by yourself maybe you don't need to worry about it. But in a work shop environment with lots of things going on simultaneously, things can happen. In our case, one of the 20A extension cords had a small nick in it (not all that uncommon with saws around) and when it was dragged over the bench basically the whole tabletop was live. Fried a couple of electronic things sitting on it - which was good because we saw that and didn't touch the top until we unplugged the cord and threw it out.

But needless to say it wouldn't have been an issue with a wood top.

I have this. I got it for something like $180 after everything got figured in.

I am happy enough with it because it is a solid wood workbench and I didn't have to pay all that much for it - but it is certainly not without niggles.

1. The legs are just posts with plates at the top. Each pair of legs (left and right) are tied together with a cross member (pictured), and at the top the plates are lag-screwed into the table top. It does the job, but doesn't make me feel all that great about it in terms of lateral strength. I sure wouldn't try to pull it across the garage.

2. The wood is not very hard. If you really do use this as a workbench, you will wind up with dings. It is ok for me because I simply clamp a 1/2" piece of plywood on top of a good portion of it. I would've done that anyway (it's handy to have a 1/2" lip to work off of) and TBH since I didn't pay a fortune I don't care if it gets dinged. It is hard enough, just not oak.

3. it's not very deep. it's deep enough, I feel, but 2" more would've been nice. but, you know, story of my life

Shipping ($70) is free when you order $499+, e.g. when you order 2 of these.

Rubberwood if anyone is interested. Not as hard as oak. I was pretty excited about the deal until I saw the rubberwood. I am planning to buy the oak 8ft counter top from ikea for $200 instead. The $50 would have easily been worth it for sturdy legs. I plan to use for a work desktop for two kids (as a single eight foot section), so durability (and maybe prettiness) were a bit more important.

Steel looks cool, but I learned the hard way not ot go with steel if you're going to be using power tools a lot around it. I bought the butcher block top.

Thanks OP!

Ordered one last week for in store pickup. Ordered two of them today now that I can get them delivered. Hoping they're as good as I think they're.

You better be quick on the Ikea ones .. "The product will soon be leaving our range, and may not come back in stock, so you may want to look for an alternative product."

What happens? Cosmetic damage?

Stainless steel seems like it would be more durable long term than butcher block. I don't care much about visual damage.
