I built this wood fan from a single 2×4 for my local woodworking association’s 2×4 contest. I used the motor, switch, and power cord from a cheap plastic fan, but the rest is made of wood. I re-sawed the 2×4 into thinner boards, and then ran them through my thickness planer to final thickness. The sides are 1/2” thick and other frame parts are 1/4” thick. The fan blades are 1/8” thick. It works well and I can make different designs for the front grill for a different look or to improve the airflow. Click here to see my YouTube video of the build.
Update: My fan won 2nd place in the contest – Woohoo! The really cool clock won 1st place and the Tea Storage Case won 3rd place. I added pics of the other 2×4 projects so you can see them.
