lots of 2x4 scrap-what can I do with it?

bedford8a(8a)January 29, 2011

We just got done with a construction project at our house and have numerous pieces of 2x4 scraps lying around. It is white pine, unpainted and untreated. Can I build something out of the pieces, like bee houses or bird houses?

You can make Peterson bluebird boxes using 2 x 4's, but its not entirely from 2 x 4, you will have to purchase or find plywood or other material for the larger dimensions.

There are a number of angled cuts required, i had a friend who was into woodworking to help me build a few of the boxes.
