4×8 Deer Stand Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about 4×8 deer stand¬†plans. If you have a¬†passion for hunting and you want to have more chances when shooting the deer, you should consider framing a box stand. This project is ideal if you like to hunt with a friend, as it’s a 2 person deer blind. With 2x4s, 3/4″ plywood and a few screws you can build this project is less than a week. So what’s stopping you from taking hunting to the next level?

We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy quality lumber, such as pine. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting. You can see here plans for a 4×4 deer stand that is perfect for one person.

Building the floor frame

The first step of the project is to build the floor frame for the 2 person deer blind. As you can see in the plans, you need to use 2×4 or 2×6 beams for the components. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Make sure the edges are flush and check the corners for squareness.

Fitting the floor

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Attach a piece of 3/4″ plywood to the joists. Use 1 1/4″ screws to secure the plywood piece to the joists, every 8″. Leave no gaps between the plywood piece and the floor frame for a professional result. Invest in pressure treated plywood, as the sheets will be exposed to the elements.

Building the front and back walls

The next step of the deer box project is to assemble the front and the back wall. Cut the plates and the studs from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs equally spaced, every 16″ on center.

As you can notice in the plans, you have to frame the window opening. Moreover, double the the 1 last update 2020/07/12 studs placed at both ends of the wall.

After building the four walls of the 2 person deer stand, you need to assemble them together tightly. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the floor. Make sure the edges are flush before inserting the screws.

In addition, you need to secure the adjacent walls together by using 2 1/2″ screws. Drill pilot holes and insert the galvanized screws. Check the corners for squareness before inserting the screws.

      I recommend wooden posts so you can lift it up a few feet.
