Made the top (roof) today. Cheated. Used Poplar instead of the Red Grandis. I'll be epoxying it and it'll be under copper or lead flashing.

Still haven’t figured that out. Apparently when they bought the house the stucco was letting water in so they added another coat of acrylic on top.

This might be part of the problem

Water doesn't run uphill. Must be near the rood plane that it comes in behind.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


Starting up on the hood which will be my last project for a while for this client. I took my measurements and did my CAD drawing, figured out the curves in the CAD and made my curved sections. I made 6 of them, 2 for each side. I'll have to do the corners in the shop because they are a different shape because they'll be at a 45º angle.

So instead of hoping I got it right I did some of the frame at the house. I was there for other reasons so I figured why not just do this there and make my life easy and not have to worry if it'll fit or not.

Here's the look she wants and the CAD drawing.





And then I took it off the wall, disassembled most of it because it's been pouring rain and I don't have a covered vehicle and brought it to the shop.

At the shop I started putting it back together, this time with glue. Figured out how the right front and side curved elements would join together and clamped them in place. Then I had the measurements for the left and just put them in place. That's where I am in the process right now. I'll likely make one more curved part for the front center and then connect them at the top.

Looks to me we have old lumber that was left and covered up prior to this newer damage. The upper looks like newer lumber.

Edit: The upper right looks newer.

From what I can tell the leak is coming from the left side of that window and then fanning out as it goes down. That’s why the lumber on the right looks new.

Found this is the wall too. Not sure what it is

Got a 36" range hood similar design, but all wood, que'd up for mid next week. So I'm curious, you going to have a 'hip' element or just form those corners with the metal?

That there is a termite nest. Looks like the termites have been killed before the house was sold.

Yes it'll have the hip curve. I'll stick square stock in there with the appropriate compound angles and use a stick with a pencil to trace the pattern using the other curves as a guide.

Not sure if I'll use two 3/4" pcs so I have a good wide nailing surface or just 1 one 3/4". The top surface will have a point beveled at 90º so the "roof" lays flat on the hip.

Should take a good while to figure it out.

2 pieces of 3/4 plywood joined for the hip.

We have 3/8" bendy ply in the shop to use on curves.

That's a fact. I'm going a slightly different route on figuring the hip rib out. Just me and certainly not pushing this as the best or most efficient way ... Cad and template for the whole nut. Thinking at best it's a wash on time to do the additional cad vs tracing and cutting. Me, having an accurate starting point, less worries overall. Still does not eliminate the hard part. Transitioning angles on the hip rib edge. Thats all hand grinding and sanding.

Got a sheet of 1/4 bendy ply sitting around (need to burn that up), so extra ribs. Plus it's just getting veneered, with that ugly alder , a bit more support is in order I believe.

That - I know you tossed it - but me, I'd make a stand for it and set it in the office some place.

Darned amazing to see.

If it's the same stuff, we call it wacky wood around here.
Hate the stuff. Very hard to get a smooth curve. I'll be using 1/8
Bending poplar.
