After several “Toy” workbenches being totally destroyed by my five year old son, my wife complained “why can’t anyone make something that lasts!” So with that challenge lingering in my ear…I decided to make him a smaller version of mine, fully functional, and built to take a beating! So this is what he got for christmas….
18” by 48”. The top is simple spruce face jointed, and laminated, 3 ” thick top. Solid mortise and tenon legs and stretchers, and a real face vise. Definately kid sized….but capable of real work. Best part is the whole thing only cost 35 bucks to make (the vise was $20. at HF). Now he can help daddy in the wood shop.
So howd I do?
