Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and new to woodworking. I am working on a project and have run into a few questions. I have attached a picture of my progress.
I am modeling the design roughly off this image I found online.
I am hung up on a few components related to the roof construction.
Question 1. Viewing the model photo, in slates used for the roof and siding are wedged shaped planks, is there an easy way to make these? I’m thinking the best way to make is on the bandsaw. Does that sound right?
Question 2. Do I need to use roofing felt? Or can I simply layer the shingles on top of the plywood using a product I found on Amazon called “Through the roof” a waterproof sealant between the two laters?
thanks so much for any advice!!
