The first thing you need when setting up a new woodworking shop is a solid, robust workbench. It provides a flat, durable surface for the projects in your shop. You can also add many drawers for storage to keep your shop tidy.
For the skeleton, I followed the Pask's instructions. This workbench is built with 18mm (3/4") plywood. Tabletop is 6 layers of them. Layering plywoods provides a strong foundation which you expect from a workbench.
After finishing the first phase, I wanted to give it a better look with beautiful walnut texture. I covered the table top with a contrasting walnut. I added a vise. And finally, for storage i added 4 drawers (2 large + 2 thin), again covered with walnut.
