Latticework Hose Reel HideawayThe construction of this hose reel hideaway is straightforward.To keep the wood from splitting, pre-drill all the holes with a countersink drill bit, then drive in rust-resistant deck screws.
Or use a pneumatic brad nailer or narrow crown stapler.Follow the step-by-step photos in the project directions below to build your own.Also, be sure to check out these 101 Saturday morning projects to do once you are finished building this hose reel hideaway.
Project Directions:1.Build Roof LatticeBuild the roof lattice on a jig, which is simply three 1x4s scr*w*d to a square corner of your work surface.Clamp the rafters (C) to the jig, then predrill and scr*w the slats (F) to the rafters, using spacers (R) to keep the slats parallel.
A drop of polyurethane glue at each joint makes the structure rigid.Repeat for the other roof section.2.Assemble WallsAssemble the walls by scr*w*ng the 2x4 base plates (A) to the bottom of each wall stud (D), leaving a 3/4-in.
reveal on each end (see Figure A, p.13).Reinforce the joint by cutting 2x2 base fillers (E) to fit between the studs, and then gluing and scr*w*ng them in place.3.Attach Walls and RoofAttach the walls to the roof.
Begin by attaching the 2x2 ridge (B) to one roof section.Clamp the sides upright on the worktable 36 in.apart, then set the roof sections in place.Pre-drill and scr*w the sides to the roof assembly, letting the roof hang over the walls by 4 in.
, as shown.Finally, join the roof pieces with screws through the ridge.4.Add BracesReinforce the structure by first attaching the horizontal cross tie (G), then cut and install the short rafter ties (H) just below the ridge (see Figure A, p.
13).Next, hold each rafter brace (J) in place, mark the 45-degree cut on the one end and secure them in place.Use a dab of glue and one scr*w to secure both ends of each brace.5.Finish Up Roof SlatsScrew the last two roof slats (F) to the 2x2 ridge.
Attach the lattice pieces (K, L and M) perpendicular to the roof and wall slats with 1-1/4-in.screws.Use 2-1/2-in.-long screws at the top to secure the lattice, roof slat and 2x2 ridge together.6.Attach Back of Hose Reel HideawayMark the center of the back cross tie and rafter tie, and then attach the vertical brace (N).
Hold the diagonal braces (P) in place, then mark, cut and secure them to the walls, roof and one another as shown.Apply an exterior stain if desired.Want more wood working projects? Check out these 40 outdoor woodworking projects for beginners.
