(crossposted to r/fencing on reddit, no need to answer in both places) I've had a crappy plywood-topped workbench at my club for ten years now. It was built by the theater guy who originally taught the fencing classes, and it looks like it. 2x4 legs, 1/4" plywood top, big gaps everywhere. It's better than nothing, but still pretty bad. So I have some weekend days free and I'm going to build a new (stand up) bench. I'm planning to buy a pre-glued 1" thick laminated hardwood top from Lowes, make some decent legs, maybe put some drawers underneath. It would be nice to have two work stations, so I think 6' long is good. That would let me put a vise on either end. I have the tools and I build boats for fun, so the construction details aren't a problem, I'm just looking for design elements I may not have thought of. What else should I be thinking about? What features? A lip all the way around? Little routed in dish shaped indentations to put screws and tip parts in? I was thinking about an embedded magnet spot that would hold on to parts, that might be cool. Any ideas, experiences, warnings? Thanks!
