Shed I built
« on: May 30, 2008, 05:10 PM »

Here are some pictures of a cedar shed that I built.  On this shed, the customer wanted beaded cedar siding so I ran the cedar siding through my router table to form the bead on the edge.

I made the window, the cupola, flower box and the doors in addition to framing and everything else.  On the doors, I had wished I had a domino, but that wasn't in the budget.  So I clamped the stiles to the side of an MFT and routed mortises for loose tenons.  I of course, did the same thing for the rails.  I used the TS 55 to cut the cupola from MDO and applied cedar to it.

The door lock was a full mortise lock set and I used the OF 1400 to plunge route the mortise for that.

  Cool doors.  Is the shed about 4' x 8'?

Great job! You should consider making play houses for kids. And I liked the gratuitous inclusion of the Systainer in the shot!
