That was not what I was expecting when I saw the title of your post! Very nice! It’s surprising what can be made from construction lumber.

OK, we said an eight foot 2×4. Are you sure you didn’t use board stretchers on that?

Just kidding. Great little project. I had a wooden trash can and people always wondered why I spent so much time making a trash can.

Enjoy it,

There’s some tricky angled joint work in this one Gofor. Not straightforward by any means (As you know!!) And what about the clever arrangement of those knots? No coincidence I’d say! We like that a lot.

Pretty neat. Nice job on the angles, and I like the how the knots lined up.

it’s beautiful
I had to go back up and re-read to make sure it really was a 2×4 entry. The wood is gorgeous.
Fantastic job

Stewart stole my thunder here. You obviously took great pains in the joinery and the read of your humble 2×4, knots and all. Excellent job.
