Your cheapest route to a sturdy workbench will be to fix a work surface to a wall. Although this is somewhat limited in its use, it will serve you during your year off. What I’d advise against is building a light workbench to use with hand tools. You’ll find it virtually unusable as it moves around whilst you attempt even the lightest of hand tool woodworking.
