They'd work fine as craft or assembly tables, but they're not true woodworker's workbenches.
Where a worktable might have a machinist's vise bolted to its top, a woodworker's bench is built to accommodate a number of different workholding mechanisms, such as bench dogs, planing stops, hold fasts, or board jacks, and will usually have one more woodworker's vises integrated into its structure.
Next time I would go with the 2" prefinished hardwood workbench top they sell at lee valley.
If you're looking to build something fast and cheap, I'd recommend Allen's approach over Christiana's. The techniques I'm using are those I thought least likely to go wrong, not those that would produce a product in the shortest time or at the lowest cost.
