Introduction: 2x4 Star Decor
This is our design and instruction for the 2x4 Challenge.
Step 1: Step 1: First Cut
Cut one 2x4x8 in half creating two 1x4x8's.
Step 2: Step 2: Second Cuts
Cut 5 pieces that are 24" long from the boards.
Step 3: Step 3: Draw Star
Line the boards as seen in the photo and draw a start across all five boards.
Step 4: Step 4: Cut the Star
Cut out the shape of the star, making sure the cuts are as accurate as possible.
Step 5: Step 5: Stain
Stain the boards to your liking. We did alternating stains to add a more abstract design.
Step 6: Step 6: Frame
Cut the extra 1x4 in half to create two 1x2x24in and two 1x2x20.75in. Wood glue them with the longer pieces on the inside, as seen in the picture.
Step 7: Final Step: Putting It Together
Place the star pieces in their appropriate sports, applying wood glue to the frame side and the underside of the piece. Clamp until glue dries.
