Looks sturdy and functional.
What’s the board on the bottom front for?

Looks a lot like the first one I built – lots of years ago. Keep going. You’ll have fun and learn from every project. And, if you can keep her interested, you’ll really be doing good.

the board on the bottom is to keep the thing standing. we ended up short on the one cut so we improvised and threw another board in. its all made out of 2×6 pine that we milled are selves.

You are suppose to say that’s a front stabilizer. Not a mistake, just a change in plans…..

Zach, Looks like a good sturdy bench. The best part being that you two built it together and can now share time using it. Some of my favorite projects are those that my wife and I make together.

A belated welcome to LumberJocks.
