Ike,

   Looks good but I bet you have already found you need more space.

Makes me jealous too!! Great looking addition. I hope to build a saw shed this winter myself. The goats are tired of sharing the barn. :D Brian

only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

[/it's a 24' span. I built the header from 6x6 three stacked on top of each other with the joints stagerd.those were glued then through bolted every three feet. Then I glued and screwd 3/4 plywood to each side over the whole lenth.

That makes a nice beam. Can add even more strength by putting in angular webbing of 2x6's between the top and bottom lams.

[That's good idea. I'm not to worried about it bowing. I figured if it ever did I'd put some plate steel on the inner face.]

Thanks for the detail on the beam.  That is a big and heavy structure!
