    I think I'm goign to make some and sell them for a rather large profit.

    :thumbsup: Very nice! Your mom is going to be stoked becaus eyou actually put thought and work into it.

    But for big time sales, use an all cedar primed and sanded shingle with a sealant to get the big bucks.

    I knwo things like tha sell up here from like small siding companies, and at like wood shows, etc, and at garden home stores and nurseries.

    the side of the road, plus peeps at work.

    I used to help my old man build picnic tables and shed's a few years back when I was in high school. Its basically all word of mouth.

    Slammed:
    I'm partial to single shake cedar shingles. An entire bundle from Home Depot was $5.69.

    The piece of cedar I used on the ridge was 12 bucks, and thats for a 1x6x6 piece. The well would weigh a ton of I used planks like that.



    EDIT:

    Here was another project I did when I was working as a cbainet maker/custom woodworker

    and this is some stuff from my room:

    Yeah, it matters what you are going for really.

    The high end stuff, my old man uses on houses costs somewhere near 125 a bundle which covers about 40square feet at 6 inch exposure but really is over kill but the builders love it.

    I would suggest maybe if you wanted to make extra cash off this, would be making a prototype one, then make em as they order them and ask what kind of material they wnat used, etc. It would make it best, because if they are pre built some people might back off buying them just because of material, visible knots in the wood, etc. But I got to hand it to you, that is an awesome gift for your mom.

    well, that may be gay to you but judging on how damn good all his stuff looks I'm sure he can roll in huge profits with his talents.

    what's your talent?
