Bench is ok. Some board dimensions need to be checked
4 Star Review   By Bernie on Home Depot - May 2, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Most of the parts work ok. The peg board is short, so I had to pass the holding screws on the last row of each side. Had extra plastic end caps at the end. Overall, nice and cheap bench for my needs.

5 Star Review   By Finkleshtine on Home Depot - May 2, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I love this bench! I bought one almost 10 years ago in CO, and it moved with me to CA. I have used it for all kinds of projects, and have mounted a vice to the top (with a 2x12 under the top surface) and it's very stable. I also mounted a 4' light fixture to the uderside of the top shelf. It's been used for everything from building plastic models to gunsmithing.

Good Bench, Needs to be packed better
3 Star Review   By Budman on Home Depot - Mar 20, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Good workbench for the money. I have the space, so I bought three benches. It's nice having the pegboard to hang trays, etc. Only thing missing is a light under the overhang. The pegboard holes are misaligned and I had to drill a few holes. Other than that, it's a good deal

5 Star Review   By johnet123 on Home Depot - Jan 28, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Putting this workbench together was a snap, and I could not be happier with the product. I am using it to work on various electronic projects so its size and layout are perfect.

4 Star Review   By KLFFF on Home Depot - Jan 25, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I found it very easy to set up, even with the "directions" provided. The peg board furnished was not correctly sized, so I cut a new one. All in all it's a well built, heavy duty bench.

Not worth the looooooong wait
1 Star Review   By 1unhappycamper on Home Depot - Jan 24, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

When this finally arrived 3 1/2 weeks after I ordered it, ALL of the shelving was broken into pieces. Had to return it as soon as it finally arrived, and i am not willing to risk another attempt at purchasing.

Easy to setup but quality not heavy duty
3 Star Review   By modesto on Home Depot - Jan 24, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Although it's called heavy duty, and the frame seems to be alright, I expected the board that makes the workbench to be a little better than a sheet of particle board. If the wood was thicker and better quality, it would make it live up to heavy duty name.

over all good product, seems strong enough, nice shelf above, and very convienient pegboard, very inferior work surface.
4 Star Review   By Jerry on Home Depot - Jan 3, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Gave this bench to my son-in-law for a gift. Box showed up in very damaged condition but everything inside was OK. Took about 30-40 minutes to get it set up properly, and he was quite thrilled to have a nice place to do home projects(they are new home owners), we had a few issues with the drawer, the stops didn't work, after a little finaggling, we got the drawer not to fall out. Our only complaint is the questionable work surface, as particle board does not hold up well.

Overall good, but lacking in key areas
3 Star Review   By JTex on Home Depot - Dec 27, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Overall this product had what I wanted in a compact workbench for a basement area, but some key issues came up during setup. The product was mostly easy to put together, but when it came time to put the peg board on I quickly discovered it was not cut to match the existing holes. In the end I didn't fight it, I just attached one side with the provided hardware, and I used zip ties to secure the other end. It should work fine with the rig, but it is not what I expected when I ordered the product. The second issue is more frustrating. The drawer does not fit. After completing assembly, I attempted to install the drawer and discovered it was not wide enough to fit the hardware. Upon closer inspection, it turned out that one side of the mount was bent at an odd angle inwards and this created approximately a one inch gap between the drawer and the mount. I was not able to bend it back in place. I was forced to set the drawer aside and just use what I have. Overall I like the product, but I cannot give it more than three stars due to what I see as some serious issues with the actual final product. I had read there may be issues with exactly what I experienced, but decided to order the product anyway. This meets my workbench needs (mostly) for the basement at a price point more affordable than if I had purchased the lumber and built a bench myself. I caution anyone that is thinking about this item, it will arrive ready to provide you with good workspace, but be prepared for and incomplete product.

Great for the money
4 Star Review   By JimW on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I have a disability and was able to put this together alone in 1 1/2 hours in my garage over junk already in place. Instructions were easy to figure out but could have been more plain. The only modification I recomend is a screw in joints to lock them in place. My box was complete and all parts fit well. I have already recomended to others.My skill level is about average.

Okay for the money
2 Star Review   By Cheesehead on Home Depot - Nov 2, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Just okay for the money, takes two people to put together and I added some nuts and bolts to keep the leg sections with the connectors. The peg board did not even match the holes so it is too small I will have to make one to fit Ugh. Not bad but do not expect a super sturdy well made bench...

UGH....
2 Star Review   By jtharr on Home Depot - Oct 25, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Once built, the products is ok for the price you pay, but it is a pain to put together. I had one missing piece from the original package, and the peg board was cut to small to be usable. I had to call the company directly to order both pieces, which they did send for free (but it did take a while to get the pieces). The pieces also don't fit together well, and it take much more work to put together than it really should

This was an epic failure
1 Star Review   By Lynninca on Home Depot - Oct 18, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

It took three tries for them to ship all of the correct parts. Even so, the pegboard was damaged and chipped and several of the legs had to be bent back to true before I could assemble it. Once assembled, the product is passable, however I found myself adding additional support both to the pegboard back and the tray storage to accommodate a reasonable number of tools. I am incredibly disappointed and will think twice before purchasing from both this manufacturer and Home Depot again. Should you still purchase this product, I urge you very strongly to ignore the "please contact us directly" paper in the box and request your missing parts directly from Home Depot's slightly better customer service.

Well worth the money
4 Star Review   By Childe135 on Home Depot - Oct 13, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Pretty good quality for theprice. There are better out there, but they also cost more. Good medium to light duty bench. Fairly easy to assemble if you actually READ the directions, not just look at the pictures.

Nice Product
4 Star Review   By GirlBuilds on Home Depot - Oct 4, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Solid for the money. Great for my needs. Made some mistakes with assembly, but figured it out. In my case it was not a one person assembly project, since the pieces were a bit challenging to construct. It would have been easier if I owned a rubber mallet. But I bought the work bench before I had a lot of tools. Theme - LIKE IT A LOT!

Holds a lot especially with the peg board, nice size over all
4 Star Review   By KLBB on Home Depot - Sep 28, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

When completed, it is sturdy. The size is great for a garage or smaller work area. It holds a lot with the shelves and drawer plus every thing that can be hung on the peg board. The only down side was the directions to assemble. Not very clear and frustrating at times.

While not a heavy duty workbench, when completed, this bench is good for simple work. Constructing can be frustrating due to poorly drawn out instructions.

Doable But Ridiculous Assembly Instructions
2 Star Review   By Gadfly101 on Home Depot - Sep 18, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

The instructions are impossible, I finally put it together from the picture starting from the ground up. The parts aren't labeled and the diagram is not helpful.The weak link is the part the "joins" to posts ineffectively. I emailed Edsal, but have not heard back. All in all, you get what you pay for.

No Problems
4 Star Review   By Coach on Home Depot - Jul 23, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I gave this a '4' only because of the words "Heavy Duty" on the description. I would not consider this a heavy duty workbench - in other words, using it for pounding, banging, major vice work, etc. On the other hand, it is a very nice workbench. I had NO PROBLEM putting it together. I am NOT a handyman by any means, and this went together for me in less than an hour. The bench is very sturdy; the pegboard will hold your essential tools; and there is plenty of storage. I connected a power strip to the right side of the pegboard so I have 6 handy outlets. I also connected a flourscent light under the top shelf. It is very nice. The cons: left side of drawer sticks a little and the table top material is lame (I may replace w/plywood)

Very disappointed
1 Star Review   By Siddalee on Home Depot - Jul 14, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Tried 3 times to put this together. Directions were not very clear, parts were missing (like 2 of the legs) and had to be shipped later, also had too many of other parts. Finally gave up and returned it. Very disappointed.

5 Star Review   By glassygal on Home Depot - May 28, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This workbench is sturdy for light work. May not be suitable for heavy pounding. All parts fit together well, but assembly is easier with two people.

Once it's put together, it's fantastic
4 Star Review   By TD25 on Home Depot - May 18, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I am so glad I had someone able to put this together for me. Even then, it took about an hour (granted, doing it by himself.) This was pretty tricky to make sure each piece was the same level on each side. There were a couple times he had to undo something that was upside down or not the same level. One time wasn't apparent until almost the end when the pegboard went up and then it was obvious one side was higher. All easy enough to go back and fix, just frustrating at the time, and he told me the directions were hard to follow. Now that it's together, it's very nice and serves exactly the purpose I wanted - somewhere for all my husband's tools to have a home. It a nice size - not too big and definitely not too small. It is very sturdy, too.

Priced right for what you get
4 Star Review   By GalliumDragon on Home Depot - May 1, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Very reasonably priced for what you get. Build quality is good, but assembly was hard to figure out from the instructions. The bench is fairly sturdy for light duty, but I wouldn't put any real weight on it. Good light duty general purpose bench.
