Timber Frame Pavilion Gazebo for Garden or Yard - Part 1 of 3

689 ratings | 24129 views
Three part series on How to Build a Timber Frame Pavilion or Gazebo. I wanted the garden pavilion to be designed and built in a timber frame style with some simple joinery. This open wooden structure is the centre piece in our garden. Basic carpentry skills are all you need. Pavilion Plans available for download. Gazebo and pavilion designs are plentiful and there's lots of options. Have a look at the shed roof style timber frame gazebo ideas I came up with using post and beam.

Not sure what would be cheaper, building the forms as you did (which does look very rewarding) or simply purchase the round tubes to put into the ground.

+MAN about TOOLS Your project looks fabulous. Thanks for sharing
MAN about TOOLS (19 days ago)
Simon, I'm not sure. I liked the look of the square over round so that's why I went with custom built.

Surprised you drove the rebar into the ground. Typically want that fully encased in the concrete to prevent rust and corrosion. Not that it would be significant for small loads with this build, but definitely not best practices.
MAN about TOOLS (25 days ago)
I agree. But I figured it was going into hard clay.

Man! This is by far the best step by step build video series I've come across in a while. Interesting projects in a build style I like ( and will actually do), great editing and narration. I really like the tips for working as a team of one, because that's my situation too. Keep up the great work!
MAN about TOOLS (26 days ago)
I so appreciate the compliments and support! Cheers, Kent

too mechanical and anal. otherwise good work
Shane K (13 days ago)
Dave Work, you don’t like anal?
MAN about TOOLS (26 days ago)
Yup. I can get that way sometimes
Jim Mourer (27 days ago)
Your videos are some of the best I have seen for instruction. Very detailed and clear. Thanks!

Great job! What kind of software do you use to write this 3D drawing?

Nice of your identical twin to help out. Love the matching outfits! ^.^

I like his help, but he's a slacker sometimes. ;o)

Oh wow - you have the skill set to make some of the best woodworking videos I've ever seen. Nice project, technique, AND nice production! And that composite shot of "the two of you"? That was excellent! Other Youtuber's had better up their game if they want our eyeballs.
MAN about TOOLS (1 month ago)
Thank you very much!! I appreciate your comments. It was a bit of a monster to edit this series and I didn't really plan ahead to do the compositing of two shots into one. So it was a real bonus when it came together well. Cheers, Kent

Appreciate the clarity and judicious use of the fast forward...and calling out each facet or skill incorporated in the build...

Good job. If you like your 18 volt Dewalt saw, you should try the their 60 volt saw. Good luck.

I’m a newbie to wood working but I don’t understand why the 4 main posts have to go on cement piers attached only to a metal saddle with screws. Why not set the post in the ground with poured cement. Seems like very weak (Achilles Tendons) joints and suspect to topple over. Where is the strength in this type of setup? From the cross beams? Maybe I’m missing something. BTW: excellent video and great looking Gazebo. I can see you care about quality of your work.
Robert Markwell (26 days ago)
It's about ground contact. if he buries these posts they will be rotted in a couple of years, and then be a big safety hazard. The saddles aren't as weak as you might think. This is actually a very common way to tie wood to concrete.
Greg Brown (1 month ago)
If you don't have pressure treated trees, you can't bury your homemade posts in the ground. I'm guessing your dining table legs aren't buried in the ground. lol

Kent, how deep were the footings?

Done :)+MAN about TOOLS

+Chris Underhill Thanks Chris. I added it to: https://manabouttools.com/tools/ under "Marking & Measuring" - Swanson 12" Speed Square. Or link here: https://amzn.to/2DTITKn This is the big square I use for everything. I really like it.
Chris Underhill (1 month ago)
Add a large speed square to your tool list, and I'll buy one

As you've probably figured out by now - I've just started building your Pavilion Pagoda. We are excited at the prospect of sitting under it in a two person hammock - we're on the CA coast :)

+Chris Underhill I poured it all at once.

Why do you need 1/4 round trim in the interior of form .
Mark Camaro (3 months ago)
+MAN about TOOLS Ok I get it
MAN about TOOLS (3 months ago)
It's not absolutely necessary but, I like the look of the chamfered corners on the concrete piers

I dig it.
