- 12 2"x4"x8' studs (@ $2.89 each at Lowes)
- 4 4"x4"x8' (@ $9.06 each at Lowes)
- 23/32"x4'x8' plywood (@ $27.97 each at Lowes)
- Sheetrock screws (I may have left overs that would work, I still need to check)
Total cost for two work benches: $98.89 + tax or ~$50 each. I'd be happy to chip in $10-$15 and do the builds if everyone else would chip the same amount to fund these.
The second work bench idea I have seen is for a small electronics work bench. I found this idea in The Best of Make. The author actually recommends a solution based on Ikea parts (desktop and legs and maybe something else). Unfortunately, it looks like this product line has been discontinued. But the idea is still a pretty good one. It might be worth a trip down to Ikea to do some shopping for the current version of this product.
What do folks think?
