My son entered first grade this year, and figured it was a good time to make him a child size work table (this was completed in August, prior to the start of the school year). This would give him a dedicated spot to do his homework, as well as use the computer that was recently “handed down” to him.

I think my son really got a kick out of this project too, besides receiving the end product. He was with me when we bought the wood, he picked out the stain color, and helped me brush on some of the last coat. The wood we used was poplar (figuring it’s not too expensive and therefore not terrible when it ultimately gets beat up some). I also used pocket hole joinery to join the aprons to the legs – reason being that I can replace the legs with full length ones as he grows older – should the table survive that long :-)
