Now that you're starting to turn trees into building materials, let's pay attention to the waste stream of sawmills. One source is slabs of wood with bark on one side and random tapering widths and thicknesses. One great use is as economical siding for buildings. Let's make some slab siding boards that are shiplapped for a tighter fit!
- Make 100 square feet of shiplap slab wood siding
- Starting with two "live edges"
- Ending with two parallel edges with shiplap rabbits on them
- Select up to 4 widths to maximize slab usage
- For example: 6", 8", 9" and 10"
- Square ends on the boards
Provide proof of the following as pictures or video (<2 min):
- The slabs you're starting with
- Cutting the first edge on a board
- Cutting the second (parallel) edge on that board
- Cutting the shiplap edges
- Finished siding
- Explain/show how it is at least 100 square feet
Hoo hoo hoo! Looks like we got a live one! Here, wave this tiny ad at it:
