Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for 31 Days of 2x4 Projects



Happy October! Let''m joining in again with a whole new series!


My most popular post ever (by far!) is the outdoor sectional we built entirely of 2x4s for a fraction of the cost of buying one - only $130. It has been pinned on Pinterest over 560,000 times! The popularity of that post was my inspiration for this series. I''t wait to dig into the 2x4 goodies, go ahead and check out my outdoor sectional! There''s intro we''more''ll be introducing one new project per day. Some will be heavier building projects and some will be more crafty. Some I have actually built samples of, some are just plans. But either way, get ready for a whole lot of 2x4 fun! 
  • Each post will have everything you need to complete the project on your own - shopping list, instructions, even a cost estimate. 
  • I''s everything. I''t been doing as much building lately and because this gets back to the roots from when I first started my blog. So stayed tuned for lots of DIY projects on the cheap!

    38. Do you have any suggestions for a finishing for the wood used in the bed project? I was planning on using the #2 pine from Lowes or Home Depot to make the bed frame and headboard. I love the coloring in the picture that goes with the project but can't find a listing for what type of wood, paint or stain that was used. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi Georgia, first of all, thanks for sharing these wonderful DIY plans. I am a new DIY'er and had a quick question for you. Did you use Cedar in these projects? Can I use SPF Whitewood as an alternative (as it is cheaper than Cedar)? Thanks again

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. I've actually used pine or whiteboard for all my projects! I'd love to try cedar sometime, though, and it would be better for outdoor pieces. For indoor pieces you can pretty much do any wood you like, but you need different screws for hardwood than softwood. :)

      Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Hi Georgia,

      I attempted to do this for my first project and I am about half way through. I printed out all the plans and crossed out all the numbers and wrote in the accurate measurements. I am doing four chairs and four corners. Its coming along and I hope to be finished this weekend. Once we are done I am going to add two tables into the space in front of the chairs and start working on cushions. Have a great day, Sid

    48. Big box wood is rounded, does all the wood have to be planed first?

      1. GeorgiaWoodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for November 6, 2016 at 5:49 PM

        The plans are for the wood to be used as-is since most people won't have access to a planer, but if you have one you definitely can! You may need to adjust some measurements since your boards will have slightly narrower dimensions after planing. :)

      2. I don't have a jointer but I do have a tablesaw. I want to make the end table and have started to make the lamp. I'm finding that both might look better with the rounded edges of the 2x4's ripped off. Have people made the end table without sawing off the rounded sides?

        Delete
      3. Georgia for 1 last update 2020/07/07 November 21, 2016 at 3:29 PM

        Yes, most of the submitted photos on the end table plan post use the boards with the rounded edges still on. They still look great! But my preference would be to cut them off so it would be easier to clean. That's the route we took when we built our dining table. :)

        Delete
      4. The cleaning aspect was what made me think of cutting the edges. It might look cool to keep the very outside boards rounded though; almost a finished look built in! Thanks!
