Start with this Craftsman 8' workbench frame red to build exactly the right workbench for your workspace. Choose this as your basic frame, then add a work surface that accommodates the kind of work you do. From there, you can add drawers and other storage space, as well as other accessories until you have a workbench that's exactly right for you.
When your workbench is built on this 8' red workbench frame, you'll have adjustable feet to ensure your workbench is level even on uneven surfaces. The red, baked enamel finish is durable and will hold up to wear and tear.

If you have the talent, tools and tasks that warrant having a real workbench, then you won?t complain when ?the holes don?t line-up? or ?gee, this isn?t 10-gauge steel like it was when grampa was a boy?. Get over yourself. Figure it out. Fix it. That?s what men do. I bought the 8-foot workbench frame, black pegboard back, stainless top, and a pair of underneath units (3-drawer and shelf). If you are going to go all-in like that, set-aside a day, get someone to work with you, read ALL of the instructions before you open the first bag of bolts. It also helps to read all of the reviews (even the whiney ones). Be ready to improvise and know how to use the tools you have. If, on the other hand, you are buying this to keep up with the Jones? or to fill a deep void left by a distant daddy?then save your money and go see a chick flick. This unit is engineered to use the least amount of steel balanced with the highest degree of structural integrity possible. The parts are stamped, pressed and punched in a factory and if things don?t line up, then loosen all the bolts, get-out your carpenter?s square, and start from one corner and make things straight, tightening as you go. If you read all the instructions beforehand, you know not to center the bench top if you bought the pegboard and to leave out the B-rail stiffeners and no, the light bar doesn?t come with light bulbs. Here?s something I learned: If you buy the drawer unit, fasten the slides to the vertical supports BEFORE you fasten the A-support (inside) under the bench. Attach the rails to the drawer sides and once you put the A-support and front cross-brace in, the doors will glide in. For the 3-drawer, fasten the slides to the first, fifth and 14th row of holes on both the A-support and the outside bench support. Oh, and screw the A-support feet all the way up so you have some room to maneuver until you have the unit in place to level for the last time. Follow the same concept on the shelving unit and you will be okay. I shopped the Sears Outlet website to find bargains, returns and opened items and I saved about 40%. Sure, it took a day or two to round-up the components?but it was worth it. Now get up off your fanny and get to work!
Easy assemble but if you are attaching the back wall pat attention. Instruction lack details as to what to do/not to do if installing the back wall with the light. Overall is a very good product and fairly easy to understand instructions. Great product and lots of space.
I bought the butcher block work surface with this bench and was happy with the work surface, the frame however I would rate average. I had 2 pieces that were bent. I'm not sure how this would have happened during shipping because my box was perfect and these were pieces that were not exposed to the box itself. After getting it assembled it did feel rather flimsly. I have a 6ft work bench as well and it didn't feel quite as flimsly. The directions were pretty simple but I didn't have the add ons like some of the others had, just the work surface. I think its a rip off they do not give you enough screws to completely screw the work surface to the frame. They explain that in the directions that if you want to screw the edges (sides) down to the work surface additional hardware is needed. I almost returned it twice but my wife talked me into keeping because my old home made bench was getting too nasty and I wanted something new to mount my vise to. Would recommend only if on sale.

If you purchase BACKWALL do not put on workbench top. Assemble frame and backwall together and then put on top. SS top will not fit properly with backwall. It will require two people to put on workbench top (very difficult if not) and you will be required to connect top by drilling holes.

I wrote a review when i first purchased the 8 ft workbench and gave it an excellent rating. Since then I purchased a 5 drawer to mount under the bench. THE FRAME HAS TO BE MODIFIED WITH A HACKSAW SO THE DRAWER SUPPORT WILL FIT INTO POSITION. This is a DESIGN FLAW. The three support beams are cut exactly the same with only one notch in the top of each beam. The bottom beam should have a cut in the bottom and top to accept the support . As a stand alone workbench it is a good purchase, but when you add a 5 drawer assemby on either side get a metal saw and cut a v notch in the 8 ft cross support !
I used this bench frame as a base for mounting my own top, which I custom-built (longer, wider, thicker, and much nicer than the standard options - black textured laminate, oak edges, aluminum trim). I also added two drawer storage units (and enclosed the backs with metal panels) underneath at each end of the frame to complete the workbench. I re-located the long lower crossbar nearer to the floor with some modification, for a better fit and look. I am using a Craftsman hydraulic chair with the bench - it is just the right height when sitting at the bench. I do a lot of hobby and other work on this and two other "rough" (and smaller) benches in my garage. This is the best looking of them all.

I purchased the 8' red frame along with the stainless steel work surface and the three and five drawer cabinets. Looks great together. Not sure where some of the negative reviews are coming from - very sturdy products when all assembled. I think some people just don't know how to put things together properly. Read all of the instructions before starting as you have to eliminate some parts when you are putting the frame together if you are adding the cabinets to your workbench. Takes a little bit of time, but definitely well worth it. Nice quality - very heavy - you will definitely need two people to lift up. None of products were damaged and it all came together fairly easily. Take your time to measure and square everything before tightening. Really looks sharp and well built.
