This instructable will show you how to build my workbench or one similar to it. I built this desk as a workbench for my college apartment so I can make while I learn. I spent $14 on it as I found all the wood to build it, however, you might spend more if you have to buy all the supplies. Good luck and I'd love to see what you all do with my project!

Step 1: Supplies/Tools or BOM!
