any ideas for a project using 2x4s

I have a bunch of 2x4's left over from a recent project and am looking for some ideas of something to build with them

Anyone have some good ideas?

If you have a table saw you can make some adirondack Furniture like this. All was built from 2x4 pallet materials.

Rip the strips and then edge glue the material to get the various dimensions. Chair is 22" wide. Back is 34" tall. Legs made from 2X stock edgeglued to get 7" width.

Agree on the lawn furniture. Here's a few pieces I made from scrap dimensional I had left over after I framed my shop...
