Easy Work Bench

This is one easy work bench to build.  I was able to complete this within a couple of hours.   All you need to get is 1 sheet (4'x8') of 7/16 " OSB plywood and 5 2x4x8's.  When I bought the plywood from Lowe's I went ahead and had them cut the plywood in half(2'x8'), mainly because I don't have a table saw at home.  Anyways.  The original plans that I found are at 

Material List:
  5 - 2x4x8
  1 - 4x8 sheet of 7/16" OSB plywood
  1 - 1lb of 3" galvanized deck screws
  1 - 1lb of 1 5/8" galvanized deck screw

   The first step is to cut the 2x4's.  The original plans that I found had the legs at 32".  To me that was too short.  I ended up making the legs at 44".   Once you cut the 4 legs, you need to cut the stretchers.  There are 4 long stretchers that are 48" long, and the 4 end stretchers are cut to 24" long.

   The second step is to assemble that side frame. take 2 legs and 2 long stretchers.…

Nail polish rack

We have a small counter in our dinning room/kitchen that my wife uses to store art supplies and nail polish etc.  She kept asking me to build a nail polish rack and shelves.  Well this is what I eventually came up with.  I had some scrap plywood and bought some 1x2 boards.  Then just pieced them all together.   And after everything was put back on the counter this is what it looks like now.
