These block bunnies that you build from 2X4s are perfect for Easter. They’re easy to make and such a whimsical way to dress up your spring décor. Just cut blocks from those 2X4s of different sizes, you can make an entire family of bunnies, and then paint them white with a little distressing and add your bunny ears and faces. They’re so easy to make and add such wonderful whimsy to your home.
Until the craziness of the holidays is over, and I have more time to spend in the shop I’ll have to post a project from a couple months ago. Based on shanty2chic plans and assembled pretty quickly with my kregjig . . . #woodworking #wood #woodworker #diy #shanty2chic #kregjig #desk #bedroom #school #maker #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #furniture #furniturebuilder

The video explains the step by step process of making a nice wooden phone stand from scratch. My first wooden holder was not the best one, but it was good enough to motivate me to make more. I now possess 10 mobile wooden stands in different shapes and styles. And if I can make this, you too can make one yourself. Search the internet for more mobile holder ideas and start making one now.

I love this lantern. It’s made from 2X4s and has such a wonderful rustic look to it. You piece it together with blocks from your 2X4s and it holds candles. It’s perfect for sitting on the porch any time of the year and you can really dress it up for the holiday season. It resembles those old rustic metal lanterns and you can easily make it from leftover blocks of 2X4 – you know, those pieces you have on hand after you’ve done other 2X4 projects.
If you tend to love woodworking projects, this workbench is certainly something that you should build. You can get all of the supplies you need to make it for around $20, which is much cheaper than buying an already made workbench. It’s cheap and nothing that you would expect to see in a high end workshop, but it’s also sturdy and definitely gets the job done.

This coffee table is so unique and it’s really easy to build. You’ll need a few 2X4s which you basically stack, toggled to create a beautiful design, on top of a metal leg base. I love the look of this one. It combines that great rustic look with a wonderful 1960’s look that is perfect for any living room. You could use the bench style legs or wooden legs – or even build the legs yourself from the leftover pieces of your boards.
