About This Project

My son loves to be in the shop with me. For Christmas I thought he would really like his own workbench with some tools that he sees me use. He really gravitates toward the clamps and my drill. I lucked out and found a fun drill that he really enjoys... "just like Daddy's!" I hope it serves him well for years to come.

The frame is joined with glue and screws. The screw holes are filled with contrasting dowels and cut flush. The top is 2 pieces of 3/4" birch laminated together. I rounded over all the edges with 1/4" roundover bit in the laminate router. The top is attached with pocket screws.

Estimated Cost: 
Scrap wood and free pegboard
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
2x4's, 1/4" pegboard, 3/4" birch plywood, 1/2" birch plywood
Finish Used: 
Danish oil
clips

Sure did

I put a 1/4" roundover on all the edges. I need to sneak it out to the garage to round over the top shelf but the kid hasn't stopped playing "wood shop. More power. Ogh, ogh, ogh!"
