DIY 2x4 Side Table

  • May 28, 2017


We made this side table out of 2x4s for less than $9, which we think is pretty dang cool! You can definitely make this with other types of wood and the steps will be easier (2x4s tend to warp and pine is soft), but the cheap material allowed us to experiment with some joinery techniques we’d never done before.
