Home Workbench Built From The 2X4 Basics Company Legs: Opinions On ?

Hello:
Was thinking of purchasing the kit from the 2X4 Basics company that has 4 plastic reinforced legs (appear to be quite strong from pix ?) to be used in constructing a home work bench.
You supply the 2x4's that bind the legs together, as well as a table top.
The legs look very well made, and it seems that this would perhaps be a better approach than using two saw-horses for supports, or possibly building the whole thing out of a bunch of 2x4's
Sells for about $65
Anyone ever use them ? Opinions ?
Thanks, Bob

Why bother. For a few dollars and a few minutes, you can build on stronger from just 2X4's and a few nails. I have built several, all very solid and last forever.

I've used their shelf kit which I believe uses the same bracket. Shelves came out very strong and it was easy to build.
For a workbench, I used a kit from Simpson Strong-tie that uses metal brackets. It too was strong and easy to build. Quite a bit cheaper too IIRC!

You buy a work bench to work on. That mean you are handyman type of guy, right? Build one. Amazing how nice you can with a couple of 2 x 4's, a few 1 x 6's for the frame and a sheet of 3/4" birch plywood. The pride of doing it yourself far outweighs any cost involved. Email me if you want a picture of mine.
