This compact bench is easy to make, using off-the-shelf brackets,
structural-grade pine, plywood and pegboard. The Mitreplan has all the
information you need, including a shopping list and step-by-step instructions.
Step 1: Cut all the parts to length. Patrick did it the hard way with a panel
saw, but a power mitre saw will make short work of it.
Step 2: Fasten the parts together using tri-corner brackets and glue. This
method is fast and very strong.
Step 3: Cut the plywood shelves to size, and cut notches in the corners that fit
between the legs. Glue and screw them to the rails.
Step 4: Screw the pegboard and top shelf to the back legs.
Wait for the glue to completely dry before you start using your new bench.
