Default Need help with SSH tunnel

I need to access a computer (Mac) at work over VNC, through another Mac at my house. I can connect with a PC using an SSH tunnel in Putty, but I can't figure out how to use a tunnel in Terminal (the Mac command line).

Here's what I've tried from the Mac terminal at home:

ssh -L 5905:

Where...5905 is the local port is the IP address and port of the computer I'm trying to connect to with VNC

And is the address of the SSH server in the office I'm trying to tunnel through.

This didn't work. Can someone please give me a nudge in the right direction to make this work?
