Well, Stanwelch, I see you are not given to doing things halfway ;) That shed will be awesome!

Thanks for the compliments guys !!  Once most of the joints were cut I only had to wait for spring weather to move on to assembly of the frame

 Trial fitting bent 

  

  Looks like it might work

Heck, you got more work in your sawhorses then I do in most of my sheds.  Look great, you have did a lot of work and I am glad you documented it and shared with us.  Makes me want to do better.

I got the idea for the sawhorses from Wranglerstar on youtube.  I'm not sure where he got the idea.  They work pretty good.  I turned all the big beams and posts many times from horse to horse.  They took the beating.  The Logrite cant hook saved my back more times than I can count. Great tool !!  Thanks Logrite 8) 8)

Now that most of the joinery is done, time to get the frame up.

  Bent assembled and ready to set in place.

  We have never tried this before.  But with the help of Big John and BIL,  got er done.   

  Screwing pier bracket to post.

My original intent was to saw rafters for the shed. The prints called for 16 pair of 4x8x16' rafters. After watching the set up of the first bent and taking pictures, my wife said "why don't you just buy trusses?
Smart woman😀😀  the next day I saw an auction of a builder that retired. Guess what he had for sale?

  just the right size and 21 of them. Got them for a good price😀😀
Saved about twenty trees and another year at my pace ! Might have shade this summer 8) 8)

stanwelch, wow!!!! So nice!!!! My hat is off to you!

I just covered my debarker with a plastic bag... and I thought I heard my LT-40 sneeze!  :D :D

We have a FROST warning here tonight... go figure! ... I so want my mill in a shed!!... but siding on the house comes first (at least my boss (er, wife) thinks so!!)

Keep the pics coming - really neat to watch!!!
