Instant Adjustable Workbench by Husky

This review was created as part of a paid affiliate program with the Home Depot.   My first order of business with this and every product review is a disclaimer: I am not a professional contractor. I am a farmer and a fine furniture maker. When it comes to construction and renovation projects, I’m a DIYer and weekend warrior. That said, I doubt many professional contractors will be reading my tool reviews. My goal in reviewing tools and products is to provide honest feedback based on my own use and experience with these tools to other regular folks like me- wanting to get their hands dirty, try new things, and get the best value for their hard earned dollars.

The bench was a fantastic staging area/worksurface while we finished out the blacksmithing space.

Partnered with the 45 gallon Husky Tote (which I also reviewed a while back), this Heavy Duty 6ft Husky Workbench provided the perfect solution for a nice flat, clean work surface in my new blacksmith shop. While I wouldn’t be likely to use a bench like this in my woodshop (I’d want more benchtop thickness, more weight and more integrated storage below), the adjustable height and ease of assembly makes it a good solution for most folks in their garage workshops. It’s not cheap, at $352, it’s definitely an investment, but a good one considering the fact that you’d be hard pressed to purchase the materials and make a similar one for any cheaper. It is extremely easy to assemble and requires no extra tools to fold up and store, another big plus in my book. I love the integrated power strip (especially the dedicated USB port, which charges my phone and camera batteries), the engineered wood top which is hard enough to withstand abuse, is finished to make for easy oil spill cleanup, the adjustable height options makes it great for dialing it in to the proper position to save your neck and back from awkward bending while working, and the self leveling feet will keep it stable on most any floor surface. I’m on a gravel floor in the blacksmith shop, but if you’re on a hard floor, this bench would pair fantastically with the heavy duty Husky rolling drawers I reviewed a while back. Like all Husky products, it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Perfectly nestled.
