I bet it'll be nicer milling under shelter.
Those are called rafters though. Purlins are something different, but no biggie.
I'd have to put in another post here with our high snow loads, or a WAY deeper and larger beam.
Are the posts 6"x 6" size?
What size is that beam two 2"x 10" or 2"x 12"?
A "boat shelf" for the living room. Planking is red cedar, ribs and keel are maple. The fiancé says she wanted one, so I figured I'd try to make a boat, then turn it into a shelf. Lots of re-sawing was required.
The cedar has some dry rot holes, which don't matter, but what I can say is that I have a new appreciation for people who build wood boats. Also, I've learned a lot so next time (if there ever is a next time) I know what not to do.
I don't post here but I likely should be reading here more. Woodland Mills HM130. This is my grandsons basement. He was 4 when he helped cut the live edge on the bandsaw. My wife is getting pictures developed of him hauling the logs home and him pushing the saw while cutting them on the mill to put on the shelves. Picture is kind of dark but 65" TV, cedar mantle and electric ( yes electric) fireplace below it, backing is beadboard from Home Depot. Both sides are 36" high cabinets built in place and Home Depot doors ( for now). 19" cedar wide counter, 12" and then 9" wide cedar shelves above it. On top is a bulkhead with led pot lites.
That's a really nice saw buck.
I made one from old scrap 2x6s, but mines real ugly and used for 9 years now so chainsaw nicked up a bit.
I added a chain on the outside of the bottom part of the legs so as to not open too far and stress the wood when fully open.
They sure do help on the back when blocking logs.
