I Built a Workbench

1. Cut legs.
2. Make sure cross beams will fit.
3. Make sure you have 4 legs.
4. Ironically, you need a workbench to build a workbench, otherwise you have to balance on sawhorses.
5. Prop completed shelf frame up against your DIY easel.
6. Make sure the top frame is square.
7. Fix legs to shelf frame with one screw at the back of each leg to allow for minor adjustments.
8. Drop shelf on to frame.
9. Fix top frame to legs, note that no adjustments were required, make sure you tell all your mates.
10. Finished. Now get back to cleaning your garage.
