8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #6: Lets skip ahead a bit....

04-19-2011 10:57 PM by JonH | 1 comment »

We have sheeted the roof, and put the shingles on. We used a rolled roof vent to allow the hot air to escape in the summer. We will put a metal grate with a screen in the soffits to allow the cooler air to come in to push out the hot air through the roof vent. The shingles were matched to the customer’s house, and we went to work fitting the doors into the opening. The doors are the siding that was cut out of the opening in front. We trimmed out the doors with 1×4’s and ...

8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #5: Day 5, We sheet the roof!

03-28-2011 10:31 PM by JonH | 1 comment »

We are trucking right along with the shed project. We sheeted the roof today. It wasn’t that tough, we just had to make sure we allowed the 1/2” OSB sheeting to overhang the proper amount on the front and rear. We are building a 6” soffit for a good appearance and it helps keep the rain away from the floor. We were able to make our materials work very efficiently since we stuck to 2’ on center with our rafters. We left about 1-1/2” of space down from the pea...

8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #4: Laying out the rafters

03-28-2011 10:20 PM by JonH | 3 comments »

Lets just once again thank Mr. Albert J. Swanson for his wonderful invention of the Speed Square. I do not remember my Dad ever having these, he always used the traditional framing square. I have both in my woodshop, and both are great. The little book that comes with the Swanson speed square is awesome. Here is some info about the speed square. I have to give it some love, it makes laying out rafters so easy! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_square Once we laid out and stood up ...

8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #3: Day 3, Wall framing finished up and siding begins

03-25-2011 12:31 AM by JonH | 3 comments »

Its day 3 here in the Wahoo Woodshop and we finished up the framing and began the siding. The siding we got was a primed plywood type of siding. Its 5/8” thick and is great to work with. It has an OSB backing, and is strong enough to go right on the studs without any need for plywood on the walls. The guys are doing great, we got the front, one side and the rear done today. We also cut out the opening for the door. This plywood will make up the door later. We need to gather up so...

8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #2: Day 2 wall framing begins

03-25-2011 12:19 AM by JonH | 0 comments »

On day 2, we got into laying out the walls. We went with 2 foot centers on this shed. Last year we did a shed that was 16” on center, framed just like a house and the thing ended up being referred to as an above ground bomb shelter. It was too expensive and was overkill. We also did not utilize a double top plate on top of the walls and we did not use a full header also. I must remind myself this is a simple shed, not a house! We got most of the way with the walls today, tomorrow ...

8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #1: It all starts with a good floor...

03-23-2011 11:04 PM by JonH | 4 comments »

My construction class here at school started building a shed, and today was the day for the floor. Since this shed will be transported and moved around, we put three 2×6’s 12’-6” long on the bottom to use for skid plates. The floor is made from treated 2×4’s with 3/4” treated plywood flooring. This costs a little more, but it should last a long time since it will be exposed to the elements. We used 2-3/4” torx screws to attach the floor joists...

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #9: The Grand Finale.

05-15-2009 06:50 PM by JonH | 14 comments »

Remember the chunk of wood from inside your drawer? That works nicely for a handle since the grain of the wood is all consistent. If not, you can put anything in for a handle, a dowel, a screw, a nail, a pull from the hardware store, a hole, you name it, just get that drawer open somehow. That is up to you. Once all the pieces are glued up, just sand up the body of the drawer so it fits nicely in the body. Once that is good, apply your finish. Be careful not to put too much in the dra...

Glue the drawer together using the front, body and the back of the drawer. Remember to keep the chunk left over from the inside of the drawer to use for a drawer handle.

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #7: Lets hollow out that drawer.

05-15-2009 03:44 PM by JonH | 2 comments »

While the body of the Bandsaw Box is drying, you can work on the drawer. Cut ¼” to ½” off the front and back of the drawer. Make sure you label the pieces so they go back together properly. We will then cut out the piece left over in the middle to create the cavity for the drawer. This can be anything you want, but it basically creates the amount of storage space in your drawer. It could be square or curved, but with a bandsaw you could accomplish nearly anything for this task. Just mak...
