Fine Woodworking from a 2×4? | Fine Woodworking with Budget Materials

I’m trying to make a fine woodworking project from a 2×4 to see if I can make about $250 worth of projects. Is it possible for me to turn one 2×4 piece of pine lumber into $250 worth of woodworking project sales? A key to making money from selling woodworking projects is to reduce your costs as much as possible. That’s why I’m making a prototype woodworking project to see if I can turn one 2×4 into about $250 worth of sales. The $250 amount is based on my experience successfully selling woodworking projects. Based on how many boxes I can get from one 2×4, I should be able to batch out enough boxes to hit the $250 mark. Batching out these pine boxes is a big deal. Making them all at once saves me a ton of time and time is money! I hope that this video gives you a few ideas for coming up items you can make from a 2×4 to turn a profit.
