A bottle carrier is a bucket like carrier used to carry beer bottles and so. Yes, the same one you must have used to carry your six-pack. Drinker or not, a bottle carrier is a useful item for everyone. It can be used to carry around or store small items around a household. And it is also very easy to build one. I have several of these lying around my house. Also known as wooden beer totes, this is one wood item you will absolutely love to make. It is also super easy to build.
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.
If you want something really unique from those 2X4s, build these hexagon wall planters. You cut strips of the 2X4 (you only need a couple of feet for each planter) and then assemble them to hold a mason jar. Inside the mason jar, you can put all sorts of fresh flowers or plants. These are so creative and will look beautiful hanging inside your home.
It is one of the easiest woodwork projects we are going to discuss today. Although it looks very easy to make, I still could not find any good tutorial on the internet that explains how to build this one. So I am here sharing an article link that gets the closest. The article explains how to make different kinds of DIY candle holders and what items you may need for the project.
Put those 2X4s to great use by building this amazing farmhouse styled X console. If you need a console table, this is a great one to build. It’s pretty easy and you get that wonderful rustic country look. You can use reclaimed wood to give it a more distressed look or build it from new boards and just distress it yourself – or paint it white, whatever you want to match your existing decor.
This wall art is amazing and will certainly draw attention from all of your guests. It’s made from 2X4 scraps and is pretty easy to build despite how complicated it looks. The board blocks are toggled to give it dimension and overall, it’s a stunning piece of art that you are sure to love hanging. You could stain or leave the blocks plain or even paint them different colors to add even more dimension.
This wooden blanket ladder can be made for around $10 and it’s perfect for holding your smaller blankets. You could even put it in the bathroom and use it to hold extra towels. It has a wonderful farmhouse look and is so easy to build – you can have it completed in about an hour and it will only cost around $10 including the 2X4s that you need. If you have those boards on hand already, you can make this one for free.
There’s a lot of space above the shelf in most closets. Even though it’s a little hard to reach, it’s a great place to store seldom-used items. Make use of this wasted space by adding a second shelf above the existing one. Buy enough closet shelving material to match the length of the existing shelf plus enough for two end supports and middle supports over each bracket. Twelve-inch-wide shelving is available in various lengths and finishes at home centers and lumberyards.
I love anything that has that great farmhouse style and this mirror is certainly no exception. It’s made from 2X4s and it’s pretty easy to build. You’ll need a mirror for the base of course and then a few 2X4s to build around the mirror. A dark stain would look beautiful but you can do whatever color or shade you need to match your décor. This would be perfect for a bathroom or you could even hang it in the mudroom and put hooks on the bottom for jackets.
Another awesome thing about this coffee table is that it is also has a storage unit. So you can store drinks, and other stuff in the half barrel of your table and then close or open it whenever you need. Pete has also constructed a video for this tutorial for which you can find the link below. It illustrates the same process in a video guide that shows you the exact process to be followed while building this whiskey barrel coffee table.
You can display these great flag blocks any time of the year, but they would be really great for the Fourth of July. This is another project that only needs your scrap wood so if you’ve done other DIYs with your 2X4s and you just want something to use those scraps for, here’s a wonderful project. Just cut off the ends, sand them down, and paint them to resemble a flag. It’s an easy and absolutely beautiful project.

Cut the 6-1/2-in. x 3-in. lid from the leftover board, and slice the remaining piece into 1/4-in.-thick pieces for the sides and end of the box. Glue them around the plywood floor. Cut a rabbet on three sides of the lid so it fits snugly on the box and drill a 5/8-in. hole for a finger pull. Then just add a finish and you’ve got a beautiful, useful gift. If you don’t have time to make a gift this year, consider offering to do something for the person. You could offer to sharpen their knives! Here’s how.

This little cart won’t take you long to make and it will be a great table for the hallway. If you love the industrial look, this is a great way to incorporate it into your home for less. If you prefer something a bit more farmhouse style, you can change the hardware and give it more of a country rustic look. Once it’s finished, use wicker baskets to hold loads of items. This would also be a great bathroom cabinet for extra towels if you have the room.

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.
