Dude, I totally have the bench for you...http://www.familyhandyman.com/workshop/w...-bench/view-all
I built this thing and it turned out ALOT better than I imagined. it was much heavier and sturdier than I thought. I've already mounted my press. Haven't used it yet other than just practicing but my bench strength is not the problem. I was super impressed how little wastage their was in his plans on the wood to cut. The way he assembled the joints made a bunch of sense when it was finally assembled.
The most important thing I learn was to take extra effort in assembly the three different "countertop" surfaces. the more square and level the top sides are, then the easier the final assembly.
All in all, i was super impressed with the layout and design. My wife even likes how rustic it looks. At first she wanted me to stain and seal it. But now that it's in my dark wood paneled study, she even likes the lumber color.
If you're interested, then pm me. I can discuss details on what worked and what I would have done differently.
