When I moved into my first apartment after high school, I went to the lumber yard, picked up a ton of 2×2 pine, and laminated panels together, exposing the ends of every other board in the glue up (leaving them proud). I fit them together as “box joints” and turned it into a TV stand, with bottom shelf for movies and a VCR. Blotched all to heck when I stained it. It was okay, but functional.

Ironically, I soon gave it to my best friend because I was going to dump it. Despite being a medical doctor, he kept the thing for a LONG time. Heck, he might still have it for all I know.

Yes, it will most certainly work. Mine worked and I laminated my boards using the stock dimensions. Planing everything to size, it wouldn’t be a problem. Just leave the ends proud and work them back if you want.
