2X4 Furniture: Simple, Inexpensive Great-Looking Projects You Can Make by Stevie Henderson
Fortunately, their are several other 2 X 4 publications by this author for you to try. Look for them by the author's name.
John B. Although this book states it shows how to build 2x4 furniture, very few of the plans include 2x4s or even portions of 2x4s. If I had been able to review this book in advance, I would never have ordered it. Fine if you are looking for furniture plans in general, but I found it to be a loser! Nancy M. If you have a few 2X4s on hand, you can build so many wonderful things.
2X4 Furniture: Simple, Inexpensive & Great-Looking Projects You Can Make
Some of these can also be made from reclaimed wood. I love reclaimed wood projects. There is everything in here from stocking hangers and wood block snowmen to beautiful outdoor couches and even a wonderfully easy to build porch swing. I hope you find as much inspiration in these DIY woodworking projects as I have! You can make these adorable stocking hangers from leftover 2X4 pieces from other projects.
You just have to nail the two pieces together, add a hook for hanging the stocking, and then decorate they however you want. This charging station looks just like those expensive ones you see at department stores, but it will cost you much less. You just need to cut a piece of your board, measure the hole that you need to fit your phone and then stain the board.
You can obviously do whatever message you want on this, but I really love the Journey To Forever theme.
The blocks are all made from leftover 2X4 pieces and then you just paint and add your wording. Or, you can use scrapbook paper and adhere it to your blocks with Mod Podge. What a beautiful display for the mantel or coffee table! If you need a sawhorse for all of those woodworking projects, this is an easy one to build. You just nail your 2X4s together to create it and since those boards are a bit heavy, this little sawhorse is rock solid. Take those old 2X4s and put them to great use building this easy DIY bike rack.
If you have kids, and those kids have bikes, you know how those bikes can be left out or topple over, getting in the way of everything. You can build this great basic bike rack in the garage, on the porch, or wherever you normally store your bikes.
You can make this great outdoor bench and side table in a weekend. You can afford to put one on each side of the bed! If you tend to love woodworking projects, this workbench is certainly something that you should build. You can turn those scrap 2X4 pieces into these lovely candle holders that fit a tealight candle perfectly. Just cut your candle holders all to the same size, use a drill bit to create the hole for the tealight candle and then sand and stain. Or, you can leave them plain if you prefer that great rustic look. This great floating shelf has a nice rustic quality to it. This little shelf is really easy to build and will only take you a couple of hours at the most.
A few 2X4s and some other materials will net you this gorgeous rustic styled dresser. I love the crate style look. It gives off such a nice farmhouse vibe. You can build it for much less than a new one would cost, especially when you build it in this beautiful rustic style. You only need a couple of 2X4s to build this beautiful farmhouse style entry table.
I love this entire project. Add some beauty and charm to your dining room table and use up those scrap 2X4 pieces at the same time. Once you stain it, and maybe distress it a bit, and add your vases, it transforms into a beautiful centerpiece that has a really nice rustic look to it. You can display these great flag blocks any time of the year, but they would be really great for the Fourth of July. Just cut off the ends, sand them down, and paint them to resemble a flag.
2x4 furniture : simple, inexpensive, & great-looking projects you can make, Stevie Henderson
This one has small holes all around the base that you can put bud vases in. Just fill those little vases with whatever flowers you want to display. You just put all the pieces together, drill the holes and then stain or paint. You can use test tubes for your vases and then just add your favorite blooms. You build the base, which is pretty high by the way, out of your 2X4s and then just add the lighting kit and a nice lampshade. You can make the lamp as short or as tall as you want or need, just cut those boards however long you need them before assembling it all together.
Imagine having your friends and family over to play this life size Jenga game! This is probably the most fun project on this list and it really does look simple to make. Jenga after all, is merely a game of wooden boards that you strategically place and replace until someone wins, right? You can do that with your 2X4s and really cause some excitement at your next gathering. This is a great idea for those summer evenings when you want something fun and exciting to do in the backyard.
