I was asked by a neighbor to make a little rough style shed that she could put her manger items around for her home at Christmas.
I was looking for some pallet wood wasn’t able to find any so i looked in the workshop and I only found a couple of little pieces. And then I found my red cedar cache.
I grabbed a 6” board and did some resawing and I had my son help me, His resawing wasn’t quite as uniform as mine. The third panel in the third picture shows the roof panel that David resawed.
I tried to cut a little under 1/4” so that I could get 4 slices in some 5/4 wood.
The frame was built out of 3/4” wood and was glued and brad nailed at the glue joint. that was to hold it until the panels were put in place. It took four panels to cover the total surface so that was equivalent to one 1×6 14” long.
We then used a stapler to hold the panels as they were glued down.
I used the bandsaw to cut the 1/2 panels that were needed on the ends.
Dave also tried his hand at doing some of the cutting.
There was a dust collector running on the bandsaw, but you can see the dust that was missed.
The shed as delivered.
I know it looks like the picture was taken in a fog, but it was really a cold camera from outside taking a picture inside and getting lots of fogging on the lenses inside and outside.
