TedsWoodworking Plans and Projects

Are you looking for some new, unique projects for woodworking? Consider this.
Most people have a shed somewhere on their property where they keep all of their gardening tools, lawn equipment and maybe some fertilizer and old paint buckets full of long forgotten paints that they don’t know what to do with. Woodworkers, however, find the shed a magical place. Where they can step inside the walls of their man-cave for a while and not have to worry about family or household matters or the kids running around or the infant crying or just to get out of the house for a while and just submerge themselves into their woodworking projects.
They want to be confident that they are working in a strong structure with plenty of space that is designed to be secure from rain and the elements while they are creating new and unique woodworking projects. They choose to have their tools organized and safe and their unfinished projects for woodworking kept dry and ready to go when they are ready to work on them.
Maybe your shed has been around for some time and it’s getting harder and harder to move around in it or maybe the floor is getting weak in places or the roof has a few leaks in it, it might be time to think long and hard about the challenge of building yourself a new shed. If that sounds like you and you are somewhat experienced, then go for it.
There are plenty of options for building your own unique shed. Find ready-made designs or kits, complete with technical plans and building materials for your project. However you are kind of stuck with what they’ve given you as far as particular size, shape, window and door options. Depending on your own experience in woodworking and that probably you’ve never built anything like this before, this might be a real option for you. A woodworking project of this magnitude should not be taken lightly and should only be attempted if you’ve got the skills and have done some similar projects in the past, just don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.
If you are an experienced woodworker, then your first concern, before you start building, is looking for some plans and decide what all the design specifications for your new shed are going to be. There are a couple of ways to go about this. You can draw up your own personal shed plans, if you have those skills, or work with a ready-made project plan where you choose the design. The second choice is easy, simple and a time saver, but the first allows you to get creative and adjust the plans to suit what you need. You’re going to find a plenty of options when you start looking for new plans, just remember that the idea is to find one with a functional design and you want it to look good on your property as well.
Sheds come in two styles, apex and pent. The apex roof is standard and little more advanced with the high point in the center and it slopes down on both sides. The pent shed has a single sloping roof. Like I said, the apex roof is standard, is very sturdy and durable, it’s just a little more complicated and cost a little more. If you want a big shed, then this is the design you need. As far as the preferred wood for your project consider cedar, pre-treated pine, oak or redwood that are water and pest resistant.
Finding new projects for woodworking can be fun no matter what your personal experience level is.
