Project step-by-step (3)

Step 1

Cut your 2x4’s into 54 10-1/2” Pieces

Giant Jenga

Take your 6 2x4’s and use your miter saw to cut them into 54 10-1/2” pieces. If you don’t have a miter saw, you can easily use a circular saw, jigsaw, or (if you are feeling extra strong) a handsaw. If you use a miter saw, you can clamp a scrap piece of wood as a stop block onto the fence and create a consistent guide so you have to keep on measuring.

Step 2

Sand the Edges

Use a 180 grit sandpaper on any type of sander to soften the edges and get rid of any splinters or rough edges.
