My 2 year old son loves helping me with my projects and loves a screw gun so I thought it was a good time make him his own little workbench I took some measurement from him and added a little more so as that he can grow into the bench but still use it now…

I designed it as usual on Sketchup using 2×4 solely and a little pegboardand you can see some dimensions but I suggest you decided how big or small yours needs to be…


Shopping list
(4) 2×4’s
(1) 2’x2’ pegboard ( my dimensions were 22”x24” wide
(1 box) 3” screws

Cut list:
(6) 2×4x24” ( bottom shelf, main work surface , top stretcher)
(2) 2×4x45” ( back legs)
(2) 2×4x23.5” (front legs)
(4) 2×4x9” ( side stretchers)

I think it came awesome and he has been playing with it for hours, all that’s left is for me to get him some toy tool…...

Nice job Ed, time to start stocking it with tools of the trade. May I suggest a large wooden mallet for driving square pegs thru round holes. Maybe a starter vise for holding larger boards or crushing smaller toys. Options are endless, enjoy your time.

Good job, Ed. He will get a lot of use out of it.
