Here's a plan for a downsized version of a classic DIY Workbench. Just click on the link for the full article with how-to photos and details. All of the construction steps are the same; it's just smaller to fit the young carpenter in your family. The height is about right for a 42- to 48-in.-tall DIYer, but you can easily increase the height just by making the legs longer.
