DIY Gorgeous Artwork Using 2X4’s

The wheels in my brain are turning with this DIY 2×4 art project.  I don’t own a saw so I was thinking of other ways to make this and wood shims came to mind.  Go take a walk through your local home improvement store and see what might work for you.  I also thought that leaving this piece unframed would look great as well.  Thanks to Elizabeth Joan Designs for the idea.

This month it is my turn to share a project for The Home Depot Gift Challenge. As you may remember, a group of bloggers, including us, purchase a selected item from The Home Depot and then use it to create a gift (which is also wrapped with a product from THD.) A few of our past projects were an Industrial Book Rack, a Wood Box Caddy, and a Pegboard Luminary. I found this month’s item extremely inspiring. So, I decided to take a plain wood board to a new level with this 2×4 artwork.

First, I cut slices off of this month’s chosen item, a 2×4, with a miter saw. Ah, power tools! Gotta love them.

Next, I used my mouse sander to smooth out the edges of every single wood piece.
