I am making my own v shiplap siding for a little lean to shed I’m building. I wanted to do something besides just butting the boards together and thought this would look nice. This is just a little mock up to see how it will look. Any thoughts or words of wisdom would be great.

Very nice work!

If you want all your hard work to REALLY last – as well as looking very cool – stain and/or seal all sides and both ends before installing. That will help prevent warping, cupping, etc.

Well done!

Cheers!

We use to make a similar shiplap siding when we were in the molding business. It was popular.

That’s a good idea Dave. I will definitely heed that advice. Thanks Mike I have been following your bbq shed blog and it’s looking good. I look forward to the finished product.
