Toddler Work Bench

About: I am currently working as a computer and network tech, where I fix and build networks and computers. I love learning and figuring out how things work. I've also done work in construction, elecrical work, plu...

This is a work bench I made for my son's second birthday. There's not quite enough pictures for a step-by-step Instructable, but I figured it could be an inspiration for someone looking to build something similar for their little tool thief.

  • The work bench frame is made from 1x2s and 1x4s.
  • The top and bottom are just some particle board I had laying around from another project.
  • The doors and sides are 1/4" sanded plywood with the nice side facing out.
  • The back is 1/8" hardboard, which is made out of the same stuff the pegboard is made of (not cardboard, but somewhat similar).
  • The door hardware can be found at just about any home improvement store or Amazon. I used self-closing hinges to avoid magnets or clasps.
  • All of the metal pegs are ziptied in place.
  • The plastic bins are made by Quantum and can be found at Menards or Amazon
  • The vice (shown in the last picture) is from Amazon: Olson Saw 37-210 Plastic Mini Vise
  • Everything is screwed and glued together, then finished with a few coats of Rust-Oleum clear enamel coating.

    Nah. Just what's here. I didn't think to make a how to, until I was done... like most of my projects.
