    I used a double 2x6 top sill (staggered studs)With the 2 shorter ends I have cut the top plates long enough to overlap the lower plate on both ends of the long side to stiffen it up. Since it's a...

    My son-in-law had a corded hammer drill, industrial grade. He also had some 2 part epoxy packets that fit in a sort of caulking gun.

    No,Bill. Fads always start on the west coast.
    When I was a young man these fads took anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks to make it here to the Midwest.. Today they arrive at the speed of light.

    Ever in search of sound reduction (I'm going deaf), rubber tie straps might reduce sound. They are cheap if you buy large bags and you could remove the usual metal hooks and use heavy tie straps run...

    Sounds like a challenge. From what little experience I have with Osage Orange is that it has a mind of it's own.
    I look forward to seeing how it went.

    At least you can still buy small plastic bottles of various proof. I like using it as it dries so quickly and no odor left behind. Even wet sand with it.:p

    Just about bought that one at Lowe's earlier today, but decided to look deeper. DeWalt has more cordless drill models than Baskin Robbins has icecream flavors.

    Thanks Andrew.
    I can borrow a hammer drill from my SIL and won't need one often.
    So then, what is the best 1/2" chuck drill/driver DeWalt makes, again, aside from the new "60v" with a battery...

    Is this product ok for the walls of my DC shed?
    Also, should I use Tyvek between that and siding?

    What...
  10. Which DeWalt hammer drill/driver is the best.

    Except for the "60v" unit that weighs about 10 or 11 lbs?
    It won't be used much for drilling concrete and such, but I want that feature.
    Then there's one that is very short.
    Which unit do most...

    How should I connect the walls at the corners?
    Soundproofing and strength are priorities.
    So far my plan is to use a double top sill, 2x6 for staggered studs. The upper sill on the double top will...

    Why not stick it in the freezer. I had some pieces coated with wax stored outside over winter and it would begin chipping off.
    At least that shouldn't push it deeper into the wood.
    I had to...

    I had enough concrete blocks (cinder blocks?) to build the shed but decided to go with wood on a slab.
    If it isn't quiet enough I can still build a block wall around most of it. It's located where...

    They took some Tardigrades up to earth orbit, placed them outside the craft and, though some died, others reproduced in space with no radiation shield at all.

    Why not contact a wood turner's club near you. They'd cry if they knew that gorgeous pile of OO would be burned. That's a lot of potentially beautiful pieces.

    It's a bit of work, though.
