My New Show Room
« on: May 25, 2018, 08:16:36 PM »
I needed a cleaner place for displaying Mantels, finished slabs, unique pieces of wood, birdhouses, benches, tables, etc.

So I took my carport which was just a catch all for stickers, junk, my trailer and anything else and me and Kirk cleaned it out.

The size is 20 x 20 floor.

Right down the middle I have Pine boards that are 2 x 22 inches wide. So far thats the first thing that makes people drool.  :D

This will be our new show room.
We are no where near being finished but I will post updates along the way.

I'm trying to heal my shins from walking between the 2 x 10's putting the floor down. (see pic).

I'm letting the siding air dry before adding baton. Yes the floor will have cracks after drying but thats the country way.

Hope you like it. each pic is sorta self explanatory but I'll answer anything.
Its nice to own a Sawmill.  :)



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I will be starting on the sides soon. Putting in lots of hours trying to keep up with sawing and building but Kirk puts in hours of work on his days off from the State. Couldn't do it with out him.
My plans are to build a fake fireplace in side to display Mantels for customers.
More to come.  :)

David,

   Its not going to be big enough. :D

   I like the fake fireplace to display the mantels on so the customer can get a feel for how they will actually look. Are you keeping a piece of scrap wood off the same cut so the customer can use to test stain samples like you gave the customer who came the day I was there? I still think that is a great idea.

   Are you going to put the mantels on mobile racks you can roll around in the shed? At what stage do put the mantels on display? While green,air dried, KD, or finished and stained/tun oil applied, etc?

Being able to interchange them over the showcase fireplace is a brilliant idea.   smiley_idea

I think converting the carport is an excellent idea.  Start selling carport conversion kits!

Looks good, whatd ya use to screw the wood to the metal?  When I put wood siding on my carport I got some self tapping wood to metal screws from fastenal they had these little wings on them to get through the wood and once they got to the metal the wings break off and then the steel drill part of the deal takes over.  They were wicked neat but they didnt make em long enough for full 2 lumber so had to saw 1-5/8 but with accuset it no gotta matta anyways.  Anyways my friend found some at TSC for me later on when we needed some in a pinch and fastenal had to special order them.  I cant remember the price difference.
Boy, back in my day..

I used the self tapping screws. I sawed 2 inch lumber. I had 2 inch screws......but what I did was take a butterfly bit and drill down in the wood 1 inch..... I marked the bit to get a constant depth. Then drill the screw through the remaining 1 inch of wood and now the wood is secure and the screw head is hidden.

Better get some blue kote on those forelegs! Seriously,  looks great! When people walk in and smell that pine you'll be halfway to a sale!

That book matched siding on the front is neat.  With that green roof you may need to put a good sized fan in the back to pull some air through for cooling.
