Twisted Posts

So final step in the shed project, wrapping the posts.

Yea I know 4x4's are the worst and these didn't disappoint they are 15-30 degree twist top to bottom.

First thought was to shim the rough cedar wrap but now thinking to just cut them below where the corner brackets will go, step the post and add a couple of 2x4's unless somebody has a better idea!

For projects like that, especially with such a nice looking shed I go buy three times the number of 4x4 I need a month or two before I'll need the posts. Then I stand them in my shop so air can get to all four sides. Then I use the ones that are still straight and return the others. You could do that now. Just leave the twisted posts in place for now and start drying replacement posts. Then when you have two good ones you can make the swap and finish them off.
