It has been a few months since I have been my workshop. A number of other tasks have come up that have kept me from the workshop. One of these projects was to rebuild my garden shed. so that I would have room to store the wood (walnut cherry and oak) that I acquired over the summer. Winter is coming and I had to get the wood out of garage so that we could get the cars back in there before the first snow fall.
The Victorian look is modelled after a shed picture I spotted on the web. I had to reduce the pitch of the rook to keep the height within the by-law limits. The new shed is 7’-6” x 9’ and about 8’-9” high. It is 2×4 construction with pre-finished OSB siding. The door is made from pine with siding panels inserted. The gable top end treatment was also modelled after a pattern from web, but being a good Canadian I decided to modify it with a maple leaf, eh. It still needs a proper coat of paint (its only primed right now) but that will have to wait until spring. I have 250 bf of eight foot long 8/4 and 4/4 oak, walnut and cherry stored on the shed. The wood is destined to bocome a number of Maloof style rockers and other assorted chairs, plus one coffee table for my wife.
So, I still have to clean some junk out the garage and the cars should be back in by the weekend. My wood and my wife’s plastic garden rodents have a nice new home for the winter.
