          Well packaged and came with instructions to reference to. Very customizable, can be used to build almost anything you can imagine. I made my version of the workbench in about two hours time. I worked leisurely in the garage constructing the workbench. I gathered all my lumber from The Home Depot and had it cut to size. (Note: The Home Depot will not cut exact measurements; I suggest bringing a tape measure and pencil with you to measure and mark cuts, then have an associate make the cuts.) My Simpson Strongtie workbench turned out just like I had imagined. Built to last, and will get compliments from neighbors and friends.
          Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Stylish, Nice Design

          Answer: 
          If you browse the instruction sheet it will inform you of the exact part number to brace the bench at 6 or 8 feet. I built mine without the center support at 6' and its just fine for my needs.
          If you don't have the instruction sheet, you can look it up on the manufactures website.
