I went to Lowes and bought two 2x4x8 and to keep it cheap I bought two pieces of plywood that where 2x4x2 the plywood will be for the bases,sides, and Worktops the 2x4x8 are for the main structure.
this project only cost me $15.00

Step 3: Cut you wood to correct lenght

you will need around six 1foot pieces out of each of the two 2x4x8. then you will need to cut one of your pieces of plywood in half on side of the 2 foot plywood pieces you cut out of the 2x4x4 plywood will be for the front you will need to cut a square in BOTH 2 foot pieces of plywood that's 12"x10" in one of the corners for where your shelves will go.

Step 4: Final assembly and paint
