Workshop #1: Build

02-27-2018 05:32 AM by RevJVegas | 5 comments »

So I figure what better to blog first but the actual construction of my workspace. While having our patio upgraded, I had them set and pour me a slab in a form I’d already setup for my 10×12 space. I got my plans from cheapsheds.com for the gambrel barn shed. Sure I could have probably designed it up myself, but I liked the guy’s videos and it was less than $10 so I figured it’d at least be a good starting point; and it was. The big thing for me was that at th...

Dust Collector Shed #3: Siding done

02-09-2018 03:05 PM by FrogHouse | 0 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks. The new semester is in session and I am knee deep in assignments. (Just an FYI I am a 50 year-old student, working on getting that degree I should have gotten 30 years ago.) The good news is that I was able to finish the siding on the shed before the stuff got too deep in school. I have a couple of minutes and thought I’d share the progress. When last I posted, I completed the siding for the door. I used some cedar trim I had hanging around from an earlier project. T...

12x8 Shed #2: "Snow-Day" Gusset Plate Add-On

01-17-2018 07:18 PM by r33tc0w | 0 comments »

Well, NOLA froze over and the city shut down til about 10am today, figured I’d go in to the office to get some work done. However, the interwebs went down in the area and the guy who runs our printers helped me cut some gusset plates for the rafters out of some scrap 1/2” sign-grade plywood.I drew up the piece in sketchup which he translated in to Illustrator for the route path Tossed it up on the CNC And voila CNC is woodworking, just a different kind ;)

12x8 Shed #1: Planning, Site Prep and Foundation

01-17-2018 04:05 AM by r33tc0w | 1 comment »

Upon the realization how short we are on space in our home and with a 2nd on the way, my garage workshop-turned-storage-dump-zone is getting the boot to a shed in the backyard. Somehow my lovely amazing wife sacrificed her garden box i built 2 years ago for my own personal workshop to go in its place. There were some stipulations; had to look like Chip and Joanna’s shed at the Silos in Waco And couldn’t be more than 12×8 because of the mature camellia and japenese plum...

The "Shed" #4: Plans are meant to be changed

10-15-2015 11:59 PM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

There is what we want to do and what happens and lastly what happens to us and in the case of my shed workshop it has thoroughly had all plans halted in the most direct of ways. With a pretty straight lined change in my personal life I have been unable to make any progress on the shed since December of 2014 and it is looking as though my shed shop will be altered into a plain ole’ shed. Over the next few months, leading into winter, my life will again be changing as it has been throug...

The "Shed" #3: Inner Framing and Insulation Thoughts

11-11-2014 06:49 AM by Ty Sullivan | 5 comments »

This last weekend did not yield an overly fruitful progression on the microshop as the house soaked up most of my attention. I was able to start a portion of the inner framing to prep the walls for insulation and electrical placements. These types of sheds have LARGE frame centers but they’re still set on a 16” center around the perimeter. So, it is just a matter of filling in the missing sections and tying everything together. As you can tell nothing too complicated about it ...

Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber)

01-04-2014 04:16 AM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single prop Cessna. The shed is now used to house the small tractor and slasher that we use to keep our grass airstrip cut. The other side has two small 8’x8’ offices for me and my co-worker that we use for language study as we...
