Deer Stand Roof Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about deer stand roof plans. After assembling the frame for the deer stand, you need to attach the exterior walls and to build the roof for the structure. In addition, you have to build the door and to hang it into place tightly. Work with attention and check out PART 1 of the project, to lean how to build the frame of the person deer blind.

We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy quality lumber, such as pine. 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 the rafters

First of all, you need to build the rafters for the deer stand. Mark the cut lines on the 2×6 lumber and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper for a professional result. Cut the beams on diagonal, so that you get two rafters with one cut.
