The 2X4 Challenge is designed to test your creativity, woodworking prowess and have some fun.
The rules are simple; design and make a project from the amount of
wood that is in a 2” x 4” x 8’ (768 cubic inches). A 2X4 can be used, or
the wood equal to that of a 2X4. That being said, if there are
components that are larger than what can come out of a 2X4 they should
be constructed as such (i.e., an 8” wide panel should be glued up from
at least a pair of 4” boards).
The objective is to use a single species of wood for your project,
however a second species can be added for highlighting, but should not
make up more than 10% of the finished project. The use of metal
fasteners where appropriate, fabric for upholstery and such is
Finished projects will be presented at the April 2014 SAWS meeting
and will be judged by the members present. Prizes available to be won
include: a SAWS membership for next year, a catalogue from the previous
exhibition, and a SAWS golf shirt. First place will receive first
choice; second place will have second choice, etc.
This is meant to be a fun challenge and is open to all SAWS members of all skill levels.
