DIY Kids Bench

We each built a secret project and then exchanged half way for the other to finish – without telling what it was meant to be.

After a lot of iterations, I decided to turn it into a bench for my little boy.

DIY Kids Bench

Step 1: Prepare the Lumber

Make all the cuts per the plans. Make the pocket holes in the rails and the slats as shown in the plans. 

Step 2 – Build the side

The sides are built using countersunk screws. They are simple rectangles. Make sure they are all square and level. It helps to use a speed square as you assemble. 

Step 3 – Attach the rails

Attach rails between sides using pocket hole screws to complete the frame of the bench. 

Step 4 – Attach the slat

Attach the slats between the rails with 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws.
