Building Furniture with 2×4’s

Half of these Woodworking Plans use 2×4’s in the design. Using 2×4 indoor framing studs is a great way to save money on any build. In Houston, you can buy a nice looking 2×4 for about $3 per 8 feet.

That makes 2×4’s an incredibly cheap way to build. You can even resaw that 2×4 into standard dimensional lumber sizes, like 1×2 and 2×2 sizes, to use on woodworking plans designed to use those sizes.

BUT, using 2×4’s means that you have to make sure that the 2×4’s are straight before you buy them. You’ll also want to pick boards with the least amount of knots.

Knots contain oils that can effect any paint or stain you want to use on your furniture. Resawing around a knot can also make the now thinner wood bend at knots. So, using a 2×4 to build furniture can be challenging.

When I resaw a 2×4 to something like a 2×2 or 1×2, I will only use that smaller board for 3′ or 4′ long sections at most. That way I can cut out the knots and avoid problems with boards that might bend across long lengths.

You can see how I resawed 2×4’s on my DIY Color Block Table Top and my DIY Pretty Side Table DIY woodworking furniture plans below.
