My daughter, a kindergarten teacher, had an old bench that had been salvaged from a roadside trash pile. She used it for storage and seating in her classroom. It was very cheaply made – it was stapled together and the back and bottom were cardboard. It was about to fall apart, and she asked if I could repair it. I told her that I would rather make her a new one that was a little more substantial. This is the result. It is made of pine with a half-inch plywood bottom and quarter-inch plywood back. It should withstand most anything that her 5-year-old students can dish out.
