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!

The following are what I used to create this project.


(1) pallet

(1) 2x4 of about 32" long

(1) 25" by 53.25" and (1) 15" by 25" of plywood ~OR~ (2) 19" by 25" and (2) 15" by 25" of plywood

(34) 1" wood screws

(16) 3" wood screws

(2) light duty hinges and screws

(4) Ikea ADILS legs

(20) #8 x 1/2" wood screws






Chop or Miter Saw

Jig Saw

Wood Filler



I like this storage space alot but would have a couple of changes but all in all it is pretty good<br>
<p>Thanks! If you build anything similar, I'd love to see your changes!</p>
<p>This is great! </p>

<p>I know, It bothers me too but thats what I get for using scrap wood! Haha</p><p>Thanks for checking it out!</p>
