I used Gorilla racks split and set side by side to give me 8' of bench that was topped by a stock kitchen counter and had 2 layers of marine plywood underneath glued and screwed so that it I had a nice overhang for my knees, yet I could stand on the edge at 265# with no flex. That top was screwed to the rack frames and also through the backsplash to the wall studs. The shelves above the bench were not part of the bench top so any vibrations when loading did not affect my scale sitting at eye level on those shelves. With adjustable shelves underneath, I could adjust as necessary for shotgun supplies (large and bulky) or metallic (small but heavy)

Whatever way you go, plan on building 50% larger than you think you will need as "stuff" expands to fill the bench space available
