This is perfect for my little boys, and I really want to build this for my son's birthday in September. I am just learning how to build though so I can't look at a picture and figure out how to build it. Would it be possible for you to send me the measurements and as much information as possible? You did such an amazing job.


I would love to make this for my soon-to-be sever year old son, for his birthday. I'm a total novice where building something like this is concerned; any chance you could send me the measurements? Gabe would be so grateful!

Thanks again, and amazing work!


I want to make this in a MOMMY size for my garage. It looks PERFECT. Can someone e-mail me the original specs so I can adapt it to my work space?

Thank you for sharing!!

Does anyone have the plans for this - I would love to make it for my son.

Any Dimensions would be greatly appreciated!!!!


This is an awesome workbench!!!! My husband and I would love to make this for my sons seventh birthday. If possible could you please email me the dimensions and details foe this project. I love your work and creativity!! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

My 6 year old is begging me to make this for him,
Can anyone send me the specs or dimentions/ directions?
I think he has more building skills than I do.

Hi. Love your mod using the pegboard. Can you please tell me exactly how you put the frame around it? Did you sandwich between two trim pieces or router in a grove for it to sit? Thinking of making some of these in the smaller size for a craft show so any tidbits to make it go faster would be much appreciated!

I would love to make this for my son for his birthday. He would be thrilled! Could you please send me the plans/dimensions?
