Setting Ikea Workbench
Ikea workbench is relatively easy. Designs vary significantly depending on the money you are willing to spend and the time you are willing to invest. But all Ikea workbench include support, a top or work area, and a lower shelf or tile backing for hanging your favorite tools.
Your Ikea workbench support is designed to take the load off your top or work space. If you build your bench in an alcove, attach the two-by-four pieces of wood around alcove at the height of your work bench’s desired height. You can also support the top with reinforced brackets attached to a wall at a 45-degree angle.

If you prefer a standalone bench, use four two-by-four pieces of wood for the bones, cut at the height where you want the top. Attach the legs of a frame that you will do around your top. The material you choose to make the top or work space on your bench depends on what you plan to do with your bank.
Options range from a 3/4-inch piece of plywood or, for a more heavy-duty option, two-by-four or two-by-six-inch planks. If you use the boards, put them side by side and place two two-by-fours over them evenly over one third and two thirds along its length. Fasten them with screws or nails.
