To keep costs down, you might have to build out of a piece in which a block has been placed. The process is a bit complicated (it starts by removing a piece of the block), and will take a while. That’s the purpose of the Block Lab, where it’s all fun and games!

This section will describe a method of building blocks out of wood that is easy to build, affordable, and very efficient. The construction system is simple but effective.
Build a wall
I started with 2×4 and 3×3 to make a wall. You can make a wall in 3 parts — first you must cut the block out! Here’s a quick video of that and how the 3×3 blocks fit together.
It’s a pretty easy process to make a wall using 3×3 (they are about the same size as a 2×4) or 2×4. I have been making them out of wood since I was a kid. It’s quick and easy to get them to fit together.
If the wall doesn’t fit, it takes a bit of time to figure out why, but eventually you end up with a simple 2×4-like object. It also makes a great “wall of blocks to build the wall out of” project for kids (if your kids have the patience to learn how to join blocks into blocks).
Once you have your pieces to make your walls, it’s time to cut them to length, which makes your wall very sturdy.
One easy way to cut this wall down to a length suitable for use is to take a piece of 2×4 and cut it to 3×1 (or 2×4-like). Then cut from that piece 3×3 or 2×4. Repeat this process three or four times for about 8 pieces of wood.
Once you’ve got 3 layers of wood that you will later cut down to lengths suitable for use, place the pieces in a circular motion with the block facing downward and the sides up (the side up side facing up is the left side of the 2×4). You can do this by using the guide that comes with the tools.
Then take the wood pieces and, working towards the back with your right hand (and turning each 1/4 of the wood one way), start cutting away at the sides of the back. This will help
