How to build garden shed 101

Learn how to build a professional looking garden shed

Have you been looking for a do it yourself woodworking collection to help you craft everything you want ?

There are a lot out there, and I have tried a lot of them, but a lot of them are crap ! Why do I say that? I have spent lots of time studying online and reading all kind of documentation. The majority of them just left me with unsolved questions. They skip over many critical parts, their diagrams are confusing, unclear, or even wrong. No wonder woodworking seemed so complicated! Most of the do it yourself woodworking collections I've bought have failed to solve my problems and did not help me create the pieces I was after.

But don’t lose hope, there is one complete guide that helped me and can help you too ! I have found that Ted's Woodworking Package had the best documentation on do it yourself woodworking, easily explained, and full of tons of plans and projects. He spent the last 2 years to put together a comprehensive woodworking package with a clear, detailed, step-by-step system that didn't leave anything to the imagination. The diagrams are easy to read and understand, unlike most of the others I found online.

Not only did I succeed in crafting the pieces I desired for my backyard lawn, but I'm actually starting to make money of my woodworking hobby because my friends saw how beautiful and professional my work looked and now they all want something done!

This is easily the best do it yourself woodworking mega pack out there ! You have to get this kit, especially if you are a beginner into woodworking. From my point of view this is a bargain, and I just had to pass the news to other woodworking passionate like me ! The patterns and level of detail will set a new standard in the field. Let me tell you why !

The collection contains printable guides and plans, for beginners, for intermediates, and advanced users ! It is simply outstanding and the best investment for anyone starting out. I wish I had these plans when I was crafting my first outdoor deck.

If you are a woodworking novice, you should first try to answer these 3 questions:

What’s the purpose of the woodworking you need done?

Do you want to build a shed for sports equipment, gardening equipment, a family shed or a chicken coop? Maybe you want to construct a dog shed for him to play inside? It depends on the woodworking ideas that you have in mind and the purpose of the shed. No mater what the purpose failing to plan is planning to fail, so get your action plan ready once you decide on which woodworking design you will be working with. No mater if you are out of inspiration or just want some design ideas, you can find the right shed for you in the 16 000 (yes, sixteen thousand !) woodworking designs presented in Ted’s “do it yourself” woodworking kit!

What size should the woodworking shed be?

Having decided the purpose of the shed, now you must decide the size of it. This means that you must take in consideration the future uses of the shed. For example if you decide that you will use it for storing sports equipment, you should consider that if you will want to put more equipment in the shed in the future you wont be able to do it if the shed is restricted in size. So consider a little flexibility when constructing a shed and build it a little bigger than you think you should. Think like in chess a few moves ahead !

Positioning of the woodworking shed

When deciding where you will position your shed, you should keep in mid that landscaping is critical. No one wants to position their shed so that it blocks accessibility in the area or is an eyesore. So look for a place to position it so that you can easy access it and that it gives a nice look to the garden.

Whatever woodworking design you decide to use, it is important that these 3 things are in balance. Beginner or expert, the basic things are the same in every profession, and not taking them into account means failure.
