Spent the last couple of days whipping up a bike shed with a green roof out of some reclaimed oak bar panels.



Ive had the oak bar panels for donkeys years, a friend of mine took them out of a London pub which he was re-fitting, they were the uprights where your knees go, 19" wide and solid timber, you don't get that nowadays...it was a shame to rip them down to lats.
I started with sheet of 1" ply, drilled 2 holes in the back to thread a cable lock through then built a redwood frame onto it with a 9° drainage angle, which i painted. Using the oak i built a planter frame, 9° at the front and back and square at the sides. I would have liked to have made the sides of the shed out of solid oak tongue and groove lats but i just didn't have enough paneling Cry



I dropped a piece of marine ply inside and painted the inside and underneath with bitumen, your meant to line it out with pond liner but being a cheapskate i used 2x industrial polythene extractor bags instead. I covered this with fleece and some pebbles to aid drainage. I would have liked to have used more pebbles but i got busted 'liberating' them from the driveway of some student flats near work and had to make a hasty retreat... 2" of substrate and a sedum blanket on top which i bought from 'Sky-Garden Green Solutions' its a mix of 12 different species of wild flower. It has been rolled up waiting for the rain to stop but with any luck it should spring into life over the next few days.


In other news... i fitted 2 German made SKS mudguards to my bike, no shit it took me 4 f***ing hours and i had every tool and a workshop at my disposal, Tut..

I am currently working on finishing a basement. The stairs that were there to start were some pretty shoddy construction stairs, so needless to say the homeowners wanted a new set. I have built plenty of what is called a cut stringer. Basically the boards that hold the treads and risers are cut in the shape of steps. I really wanted to step up my game on these ones so I decided to build my first pair of housed mortised stingers.

What an adventure...

The first thing I had to do after figuring out all my dimensions, ugh lots of math...., was make a template.



Then figure out the layout and route out the stringer.



Use the jig to make pocket screw holes for the risers.



Assemble by sliding the treads and risers from the back. They are set into place by hammering a wedge underneath them and with lots of glue.





They were allowed to dry over night then installed.









Not too bad for my first try...
