I made this simple workbench for my son for his 3rd birthday. It’s 18” tall, 24” wide, and 12” deep. Its perfectly sized for the little guy. Now he can have his own little space in the workshop.

The top and shelf are attached with pocket screws to keep a nice top for it.

Yeah, a vise would have been a good idea. We opted for a tape measure as a first tool. I figure some extra practice measuring before he gets to the cutting stage is probably a good thing!

Put in a vise or two and you’re set to go! You don’t have to have a fancy cabinetmakers bench to do woodworking. How many of us started with a Black and Decker workmate? Do some woodworking and then build the fancy bench.

Looks like my bench, that I use, that I built 15 years ago! You’ll never forget this little guy, that’s for sure.

He’s three ?

Give him a year, and let’s see if he has strong opinions about SawStop :-)

Nice bench. I love seeing the next gen of woodworkers coming up !
