Since I’ve started building I have always enjoyed building trees, most of my builds have at least a few. This tree that I will show you how to build has been one of my favorites to build for several years now. What makes this technique stand out is its rounded trunk, as well as the ease of which you can add detail to it and make it quite large.

Are you short on time and don't know which sized Pick-A-Brick cup to get if you only want 2x4 bricks? I answer that and provide some general tips for loosely packing your Pick-A-Brick cups in this video, and I mention the main points in the article here.

This begins the video portion of my Pick-A-Brick series of articles. The main reason why I am doing this is to help you and I find the best ways to get the most brick for our buck given our time constraints. Let's face it, we don't often have the time to spend trying to really pack our Pick-A-Brick cups. In these videos I compare large and small cups, packing methods, and prices per piece all while using math to analyze the findings. Some videos will be about stacking, and others about not stacking. For the most part, each article/video will only focus on one type of piece.

Today we're looking at 2x4 bricks. Specifically, when they are not stacked inside a PAB cup.
