This is my “kids workbench” that my kids and I built. They like to go out with me and build thing with me. They use all the scrape wood from what ever I am working on for their projects. So for Christmas Santa brought them some tools ( HF Tools ) to work with. The bench is 3/4” Plywood, 1/2” particle board, 2X4s and Hard board. The dimensions are 61’ L X 27”W x 28” H. The Vise is a bessey that we got from a Big Box Store for $20.00. My girls are already to go to work now with their Tools, Bib Overalls and their new Work Bench. Thanks for stopping by.

Looks good and you got them started early.
Now teach them well and drill safety into them !
I don’t see them wearing safety glasses !

Ha ha, I have an old shipping skid sitting with scrap wood legs held together with a few drywall screws. Your kids bench is way better. nice work.
