    I found this in a magazine and wanted to share it with everyone, its really easy to build, sturdy and a grreat addition to anyones garage/workshop. They lay the instruction and material list out really simply, very little wasted.

    If you would like this in PDF format i can email you. So PM me your email and i will reply as soon as I can.

    Nice bench! I wish lumber was cheap enough to actually build it for $50 though :cool:

    Very nice plans though, I like how waste is minimized so you get the most out of the lumber you bought.

    So the PDF is missing the "Cutting List"
    The photos in the original post are a little fuzzy but I reckon I can decipher the list there:

    A 9 71 7/8" (Backer Boards, Upper Shelf Legs and rims)

    B 4 68 7/8" (work surface and lower shelf rim)

    C 4 35 1/2" (legs)

    D 4 27" (end rims)

    E 5 24" (work surface joists)

    F 5 15" (lower shelf joists)

    G 7 9" (upper shelf joists)


    Does this look right?
