"It's common knowledge that 2x4's aren't actually 2x4. In fact, the dimension of a standard 2x4 is closer to 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 96". However, this is just enough material to produce a pretty nice chair. With these instructions you can build a chair for about the price of a cup of coffee."
Industrial Designer and Brown University lecturer Ian Gonsher worked with student Jake Geller to produce a free-use DIY chair project for the summer. All you need is one 2x4, a little bit of time and some simple tools to get started. Download instructions here and let us know how your chair turns out!
