About Project

Hey everyone, it's Brad from FixThisBuildThat.com.  This Kids Workbench is perfect for your little future woodworkers and DIYers. It is a fully functional workbench that can be put the in shop to let your little tikes build along with you. Or set it up inside for the ultimate play workbench.

You can see the full build plans on my DIY Kids Workbench post over at FixThisBuildThat.com

The kids workbench stands 24″ high at the work surface, fitting for a broad range of ages. The shelf under the kids workbench will hold all the loose odds and ends and the integrated lip will keep everything contained. A grid of pegboard on the back will let your little builder store all their tools in easy to reach spots and help keep everything tidy when it’s time to clean up. Hidden pocket hole joinery makes this build quick and attractive. You can easily knock this project out in a short weekend!

Really cool project! I'm still finishing mine up that I'm building for my 2 year old son for Christmas. I changed a few things with mine. I used 2x3's for the legs to beef up the support and keep it sturdy (this did change cut lengths a bit). I also changed the leg heighth and the table top sits at 20" because my son is only 33" tall. I was lucky enough to have access to a CNC machine and I had the shop cut the table to size and cut dowel holes for a hammer/ peg setup. A word of advise, ALWAYS make sure the wood purchased is straight as an arrow. I have had very little luck with Home Depot lumber. They tend to be expensive and the wood is not great quality. For every project henceforth, I will be purchasing through lumber yards.
