Check out how I made this beautiful cabinet from construction grade 2x4s. All of the assembly joinery is pocket hole construction.

Wicked use of SPF dude.   Way inspired to try this myself with all my old cut offs.  Way to go.

All my lumber is from old 2X4's. I like the way you cut yours. I have built several benches using 2X4 construction. The slats on the bench have to be 3/4 thick. by 2-1/2 inch wide by 45 inches long. I have had a hard time finding 3/4" lumber in scrap piles. Splitting 2X4's may be the answer for me. Thanks for the information. I like your cabinet.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction
