2x4Basics manufactures a series of DIY kits containing most of the materials and hardware that a consumer requires to build her own outdoor furniture, outdoor structures, and garage and storage solutions. The company also manufactures the Dekmate, which is a bench bracket for stabilizing on-deck DIY benches.
Each kit consists of 2x4s and basic hardware. Assembly instructions are available in PDF on 2x4Basics.com. Some kits require the purchase of additional hardware, such as recommended hinges for doors. 2x4Basics attests that no project requires a miter or advanced carpentry skills. Most projects do not entail abstract silhouettes, and 90-degree cuts with a saw typically suffice to customize wood.
Picnic table legs are examples of the DIY kits for outdoor furniture. The garage and storage solutions kits include materials to build a sawhorse and a firewood rack. Shed kits fall under the category of outdoor structures and include galvanized steel connectors.
