Hello, I want to build a very simple, basic mini tool shed with emphasis on functionality and not so much on aesthetics. I am definitely a total newbie to carpentry work and want to keep things very simple.
What I'm envisioning is three shelves around 40 by 24, framed with two by fours, two by for main support, plywood back, sides and hinged door and a slanted roof...it will primarily be used for my automotive tools so it needs to be pretty heavy duty and would like to be able to support tool racks on one of the back walls..
Basically, I'm looking for input and guidance on which fasteners (nails, deck screws etc) and how many to use at each joint - shelf frames and where the legs attach to the shelves. I suspect I've been way over building my project so far - using 3" deck screws for everything etc
