This simple little play table with storage has got to be one of my favs. It's perfect for homeschooling, crafts, or for bigger kids to do their homework or play games on. Special thanks to one of our readers for the photo! Inspired by Land of Nod's Elementary Table.

When you are cutting with a jigsaw in multiples, save the scraps to use as a pattern.
Start by marking pieces A 11 1/2" from the outsides. This is where the vertical dividers will go. There will be a 11 1/2" space, a vertical divider, another 11 1/2" space, another vertical divider, then a final 11 1/2" space. Once you have both of As marked out, begin to assemble using screws (predrill and countersink to avoid splitting) through the sides of A into the end edges of B.
