In the late 1970s, a magazine called Fine Woodworking hit the newsstands and this publication changed the way I thought about magazines. Fine Woodworking took a hands-on approach to the subject, giving clear instructions without being either condescending or overly simplistic. Soon Taunton began publishing books that had the same look and feel as the earlier magazines, but with greater depth of knowledge on a subject. Building a Shed is that kind of book. $9.95.
Written by Joseph Truini, this 200 page, full-color soft cover not only answers the basic questions you might have about building small out buildings, but also has hundreds of little secrets for making any building project a bit easier.
Templates for building roof trusses, dealing with simple foundations, the advantages and disadvantages of various types of siding and shingles, roofing options, building and installing doors and windows are just a few of the subjects covered.
If you are planning to build a shed for the first time or just need inspiration for what you consider to be a tedious job, this book will be a breath of fresh air. Over the years, I have collected a few books (my father still subscribes to Fine Woodworking) and I always keep my eye open for Taunton Press books. We’re happy to make this one available in a limited number of copies, so don’t hesitate to place your order. Originally sold for $19.95, N-News special price is just $9.95.
