I built my work bench from 1 1/2 in.steel plate,44 in. wide by 118 in. long.The plate was gave to me.I cut a house trailer axle down to 44 in. wide and mounted the table on it.I used the left over axle to make the tongue with a coupling to remove it when I'm working.I don't have a garage so I keep it outside.I have my bench grinder and drill press mounted on 2 in. tubing and put a bolt on receiver hitch under the table.There are 3/4 in. holes drilled every 4 in. the entire length and width so I have no trouble fastening anything down.The whole thing weighs about 2400 pounds,I move it around with my truck.

I usually build one to fit the job, or size area. 1/4" steel top, a vise, and maybe a drawer or two. Depending. A lot less expensive, most of the time, and it gives you something to do on a Saturday...
