Was thinking about making a 100% 2x4 project this week, thought I'd try and get some ideas here.  Post photos of projects you've built only out of 2x4's here!  Be sure to include any issues you saw, or other details about your project.

I'm in the process of cleaning up and organising my garage (actually just started on it) I'm building all the shelving out of 2x4's (main posts and shelve support) and plywood for the actual shelves. Of course I'm using pocket holes for the frame and I'm real happy with the ones I've finished so far. I'm also hanging some on the walls to get use of my high ceilings in places where I can't put a free standing shelf. I'm making the supports myself out of 2x3 studs then laying plywood on top. I will try to take some pictures of them tomorrow. I will also take some pictures of how to build them when I build the next one maybe later this week.
Have just finished a chair out of 2x4's. Here are the photos.

I build an end table and a coffee table out of 2x4's, and used the pocket hole jig to attach the top.

Yes. I could email the plans to you if you like. I used nothing but framing 2x4's and it came out great.

I am developing plans for a totally 2x4 Farm House Table. Very Similar to the coffee table I built just on a much larger scale. There are all kinds of things you can do with them.
Not the best pictures but here are the shelves I'm building for my garage. The next one I build will be fully enclosed because I'm going to be puting chemicals in it and I don't want my kids getting into it.

The first one I built was mainly for fire wood and learned quit a bit doing it. The second picture shows the peg board I mounted on the side to hold some tools. I could not go all the way to the floor with the peg board because normally a trash can sits beside this shelf but it was out front today. The third picture is the second shelf I built (not a great picture stuff in the way but you get the idea) what you see attached to the side of it is a hanger I built to hold my knock down saw horses I'm still thinking about how I can hang the spans thats them sitting in front of the shelf.

I'm not sure if this counts but I used 2x4s and 2x6s to make this picnic table.

There are a few books writen by Stevie Henderson and Mark Baldwin on 2x4 furniture and accessories (ISBN:1-57990-160-3). Also there is a book from The Family Workshop on indoor and outdoor 2x4 furniture (ISBN: 0-385-24149-6). Both of these books are hardback, also may be in papperback. You should get some ideas out of the books. Good luck.
Great plans and chair I built one only took 2 hours. Where did you get these plans? Also a suggestion/idea. If this was being used outside wouldnt using pressure treated 2x4's (like you would use to build a fence) be better than the framing 2x4's to discourage bugs. Obviously the stain (if you choose to stain it) would take care of the weather proofing and rot.

I put a mobile shelf together a couple of weekends ago.  I got the plans out of a wood woorking mag.  Yes, I used my Kreg Jig. I didn't think to take pictures before I started filling it.  I really needed to get the stuff off the floor!

Adaptive Cutting System

I really like the Adaptive Cutting System (ACS) and hope to buy it soon. My table saw really scares me as I have a bad knee that likes to buckle on me at inopportune times. I can just picture it happening at the table saw and tossing me into the saw…Continue

I really like my K4 pocket hole jig but I had a big cabinet project coming up so I wanted a way to clamp the boards to it faster than the toggle clamp alowed. I had seen some other people make pocket hole jigs with pneumatic cylinders in place of…Continue

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
