I love woodworking and have been doing it for many years now. I started out as a teenager when I built my first skateboard, but over time I’ve expanded into all sorts of projects — from furniture to toys for kids, etcetera. Recently, though, I decided to take on something new by building myself a shed so that I could store some materials outside my house 🙂
Woodworking is a passion that all share around the globe. If you are amateur or experienced, it doesn’t matter because we all share this common interest, and it brings us together. The topic of woodworking is one that has been covered numerous times over, and it’s one I haven’t covered yet because I haven’t taken on any substantial projects. But after reading (and learning from) Andrew Taylor’s blog post about making a shed plan for himself, I’ve decided to make one for myself as well.

He covered all the basics — from buying the right tools to finding the best shed plans online — so I don’t need to go into those details. What I will write about today is that I took on this project because I needed a place to store my tools and materials in my backyard. I have an unfinished basement in my house and have been using that space for storage, but it’s time for me to expand into some outdoor space now that spring has arrived and we’re all spending more time outside enjoying nature’s wonders 🙂
As you can see, my shed is made from cedar and has an A-frame roof. This style of roof is very popular for sheds because it’s easy to build and looks great. It also provides more space than a gable or hip roof would, but it still keeps the overall aesthetic in mind. Let’s talk about some other details that make this shed so perfect:
- The frame was built with 2x4s and 2x6s
- There’s no floor yet…I’m not sure if I want to add one or not yet; we’ll see what happens when I have time to work on it 🙂
So here are 5 tips (and some simple steps) that helped me build my shed plan and get started with woodworking:
- Get your tools ready.
- Choose the right shed plan.
- Find a place to build it.
- Prepare the ground.
- Start building the shed!
You should also get creative! Looking at Pinterest and other websites is a great way to figure out what kind of projects you can take on yourself, but if you really want something specific then make sure to use your own imagination 🙂

Don’t forget that it’s okay to try something new and different. You might be afraid that people will laugh at your ideas or think that they are silly, but don’t let this stop you from trying something fun 🙂
I hope this post helped you by providing some useful tips and tricks on how to build your own shed plan. I also wanted to make sure that readers knew that if they don’t have a lot of time or experience, then there are plenty of other options available online — such as using pre-made plans with instructions!
