Pin Oak - Shed Plans
« on: August 10, 2013, 11:42:04 AM »

Hello Members,

Thank you for the responses on my Poplar Poison Ivy logs...TECNU is a life saver for the itching.

I was wondering if anyone has plans for ~20x10 shed out there...I have 100' of 20" Pin Oak getting dropped next door and plenty of free timber to mill.   Here is one Barn type shed I saw in a lot near me along with my existing shed next to my newly built lumber rack since Hurricane Sandy here in New Jesery  (Walnut, Chery, Birch, Oak, Pine, filling up quick ) and my neighbors think I am nuts for the WoodMizer LT10 :)

 

 

Thank you for any responses or ideas to make my life a little easier....The thread on making lap siding seems to be the best for the outside.

One thing I will say is Pin Oak is known to have little knots throughout the log. That can make it hard to get usable framing lumber out of it. Not that it is impossible, but you might end up with a lot of waste boards compared to usable ones. However if the wood is free, I would definitely give it a shot, can't pass up an excuse to saw something ;).

If you prune up pin oaks when they are small, no pin knots and very fast growth. ;D
Manage 80 acre tree farm in central Missouri and Mesquite timber and about a gozillion saguaros in Arizona.

And pin knots are not detrimental to strength, whereas large pin oak knots would be. ;)

Definitely. If you start pruning them up when they are poles, you don't get either kind of knot. Just nice, clear wood. We are starting to cut trees in MO that we pruned and thinned starting in 1992. The stuff is coming in super nice. ;D 8) 8) 8)

Well hopefully none of the knots are too big!
