Can you cherry pick out of several 2×4s to get nice grain as long as the total used is equal to 2×4x8?

"Entries for this category are to be boxes with dimensions (height, width, depth) not to exceed 18 inches / 45.72 centimeters." Does that mean each of the three dimensions, or the sum of the three dimensions (9"w + 5"d + 4"h = 18") must be less than 18"?

Should this question be posted on the forum instead of here??

I think cherry picking out several 2×4's to come up with a knotless perfect 8' 2×4 would, perhaps, not be in the spirit of the challenge. :)

Yup, time to get at it!

What about cutting a 2×4 out of a larger piece of lumber and starting with that?
Also what if that piece measured an actual 2×4 and not 1 1/2×3 1/2?
What if you started with a old piece of lumber that was really 2×4?

the rules state that "2×4" stands for the typical stud, whatever means to you and does not necessarily stand for the measurements.

But if you happen to have a 2×4 that is actually 2×4 then it sounds acceptable to me.

So are we talking about a construction grade 2×4, or can it be any species of wood? Like nice 2×4 of Wenge :)?

Hello all;
I do believe that what Martin is trying to convey in his post above, is that all questions as to the 'how -why's should be asked and posted to here for further and future discussion and questions.

In my opinion concerning the species of wood and type for a 2''x4''x8'. means buy it that way--cut it that way out of bigger--use your imagination as long as when you start making your project, what you have before you is a 2''x4''x8'. All species of wood is open and fair game….

--Note: 2''x4''8' would be what I would choose if I was re-sawing//or if coming rough saw'n from a sawmill and then if I'm buying already cut, there is the standard form of 1-1/2''×3-1/2''.

Re-member that imagination and creativity are what count here….

GODSPEED,
Frank
