I am a crafty person at heart and love getting myself into new projects. I also really love photography and the props out there for it all but they are all so expensive and I know I could make them for a fraction of the cost. So I set out to create the perfect work space for myself. This work bench was a splurge, but after doing my research I decided it would be worth it in the long haul. So far it has been more than I could have hoped for. The assembly was easy and done within half an hour. I love the option to change the height of the table so I can work from a sitting or standing position and the legs adjust easily but are still incredibly sturdy. The legs also have a leveling ability so if your floors are not perfectly even it is okay. This table is so sturdy that it boasts a three thousand pound load capacity. I have not come close to this limit but based on its construction I have no doubt it could easily handle this weight. The wood surface has a very nice finish to it and makes my work space feel professional.
