2×4s can appear to be ordinary items that are generally hid behind walls. However, with a little ingenuity and creativity the 5bf in a typical 2×4 can be transformed into toys, keepsakes, fine furniture … the imagination is its only limit. In this video, which is my entry into the Summers Woodworking 2014 2×4 Competition, I create an Arts and Crafts-style book/iPad stand featuring an interesting grid pattern and some Walnut stain to make it ‘pop.’
If I hadn’t of told you it was made from a pine 2×4, would that have been your first thought about the type of wood used?
