Build This Handy Little Bench In A Snap

Who’s Pete? Years ago, I worked with a guy named Pete who brought along a cool little bench like this to every trim job.

He used it for everything - to stand on, cut on and, of course, to plant his butt on during lunch.

After 25 years, I decided to build my own version from 2cm plywood.

The bench only takes a couple of hours to cobble together.

Give it a whirl; you’ll use it more than you think.
