11echo I have something similiar, got some used 3/8 thick steel plate at steel supply place for a deck. FYI ...I also welded 3 angle brackets on the 3 working sides for electrical outlets ...makes it easy when using power tools at your work bench!!!

new metal workbench

Here's my new workbench. The beautiful Vana White is showing the fine craftsmanship of this 30 x 72 all steel workbench. Actually that's my wife Donna playing the spokes model part, and doing a wonderful job, I must say.
Made of recycled soccer goal posts, my only expenses were the casters and a sheet of 1 1/8" plywood. All told it cost me 70 bucks and 18 hours labor. The steel came with a combination of rust and white paint and that took many hours to remove.
The new workbench takes the place of one I built when I was 19. That one started out as a stained glass workbench with an integrated light box (for seeing the pattern through dark colored glass). It had been moved many times and over 700 miles to it's current location. I modified it in 1991 to work as a mitre saw extension and general catch all in my garage. It was kinda sad to see the old bench go after 35 years of projects.
The idea behind the casters is so the new bench can be moved to accommodate the work. Roll it out onto the driveway, and I can use it as a extension for my table saw and save time sweeping the garage. Always a plus.
