I made this footlong sub sandwich for a 2×4 contest that my woodworking association had this past weekend. I ended up winning a gift card to Peachtree Woodworking Supply. I had no idea how this would turn out when I started, which is one of the things I love about 2×4 contests. The tray and the sandwich are all made from the same 2×4. I used some stain and food coloring to make it look more realistic. The lettuce is made from planer shavings. Check out my video for a closer look. And yes, it is a full 12” long. LOL Is it lunch time yet?

Very creative! That is definitely the most fun entry for a 2×4 contest I have seen. Well deserved win.

We’ve had lots of “food” projects, and they’re all very clever. There are probably more than this. Many of these are Hairy’s.
