How many extra 2x4s have you purchased just to support long molding strips or pipe during the ride home from the store? Jason Knisely of Yukon, Oklahoma, (via e-mail) cut a 12-ft. 2×4 to fit inside his truck bed and then reattached the remaining piece with a hinge.

Jason leaves the folded 2×4 in his truck bed so it’s ready to take on a supporting role at any time
