This step by step woodworking project is about duck blind plans. This is PART 2 of the duck blind project, so you can get the job done in a professional manner. The front and back doors help you and your dog have an easy access to the shelter. The plans come with step by step instructions and you can easily adjust all the dimensions to suit your needs. See my other DIY projects HERE.
We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

Building a duck blind roof
Start the PART 2 of the project by assembling the roof frame. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the 96″ long components and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components.
Attach the frame to the top of the back wall. Drill pilot holes through the frame and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the frame, after aligning the edges.
Attach a piece of 3/4″ plywood over the frame and secure it into place with 1 1/4″ screws.
Attach the 3/4″ plywood to the sides of the duck blinds.
Install a 2×4 vertically, that will support the roof frame.
Build the front door from 2×2 lumber and from 3/4″ plywood. Use 2 1/2″ screws for the door frame and 3/4″ plywood for the door panel. Assemble everything together, making sure the corners are square.
Build the back door in the same manner described above.
Hang the back door to the back wall. Use hinges and a latch so you can secure the door into place tightly.
Hang the front door to the front of the duck blind. Use hinges and a latch so you can secure it into place tightly.
This duck blind is compact enough so you can build it almost anywhere. Make sure you apply a few coats of camouflage paint over the components so you can protect the components from decay and to disguise it.
This duck blind is the ideal project is you go for hunting and you need a shelter. You can easily adjust the size of the blind to suit your needs, while you use the same techniques described in the project. If you like my project, don’t forget to SHARE it on Facebook and Pinterest.
