I built this small woodshed with just enough room for 1 and a half cords of good hardwood. I’ve seen much bigger ones , but I needed a small one so I guessed at the dimensions and kept it the size of a sheet of plywood. The metal roof overhangs enough to protect from the elements and give a little extra room for some extra wood!

Hey, that is way cool!! I like the grace of the design – I am seeing potting and gardening shed/bench for the household gardener.

Great post, thanks.

I love all of the fantastic joinery and curves and the scale is perfect : )
I think it’s saying loud and clear that a true Craftsman works here !

Beautiful joinery. Where did you learn the process. Was it from a book or did you go on a build? Outstanding!

Very, very nice.

I am curious about how you cut the 2×4s and 6’s? This is an amazing project and phenomenal design. I have absolutely no need for this, but I find myself dying to build one.
