Measuring and Cutting Parts

  • Using a table saw, cut the 2 X 8' pieces of 2X4 in half into 4 X 4' pieces.
    • If you don't have access to a table saw, you can get your wood cut at any local home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot for pretty cheap.
  • Use a ruler and a pencil to measure out the pieces of wood.
  • On one 8' piece, measure out 4 X 12" pieces which will be our legs for the tumbler.
  • On the second piece measure out 2 X 10" pieces which will be the short connectors.
  • On the third piece measure out 2 X 18" pieces which will be the long connectors.
  • The fourth piece can be used for any mistakes or just to keep as scrap wood.
  • Use a table saw (or home improvement store or a hand saw) to cut the pieces accordingly.
