Some construction lumber and a weekend’s worth of work can produce the most used tool in the shop… a workbench.
The solid-core door makes a strong flat benchtop. Look for one that’s scratched or dented and you can get a solid top for a few bucks. Bolted 2×4’s give this bench a solid foundation. The bottom shelf and the optional drawers add a lot of useful storage. If you’re looking for an inexpensive bench that’s rock-solid and simple to build this is it.
