 I'm finishing the 12x16 Sobon Shed and giving it to my mother for her Kubota RTV and her new lawn mower. I'm going to raise it at a local fall festival next month as a demonstration.

I'm just about finished with the cherry sills for the shed. Going to try to get them set tomorrow. I made these 2" thick, but next time I am definitely going to go 3". Cutting through mortises near the ends really weakens the sill. I drilled pilot holes and ran 8" headloks in the ends.

Raised two bents. It snowed towards the end of the day. Felt good going vertical. I am using a telehandler for raising and am surprised how well its working giving the lack of swing.

The top piece is a long sill with a stub mortise. The notch is a cog to locate the end sill. The two lower pieces make up another long sill. There is an elaborate, and unnecessary, scarf joint around the bent II post stub tenon.

Half the scarf. You can see blue lumber crayon where the stub tenon goes.

 First loose fit up on the slab. There will be an 8" Headlok on either side of the scarf.

It's probably just me but I find it an ordeal to post pictures on here.

Thanks, I only meant that I find it hard to post pictures.  I usually end up putting the same picture in my gallery a few times before I get it on my post.

I myself find it's much easier to post pictures on here than build an event barn.  ;)   :D

A little project I've been working on. It is the woodshed from the small buildings TFG book, designed by Will Beemer. Simple looking building, bit of a PITA to build, particularly solo. Plus, my framing skills got a bit rusty since finishing my shop, so don't look too closely.

Will finish the rafters once I sort out why the shop heater is working properly.

Bent C is now up...the tallest one. I clocked 150MPH winds last week. My big ponderosas were swaying like crazy but the frame wasn't moving a hair.  8)
