The next stage of my blacksmith renovation project, sponsored by 3M, is in full swing. I’ve partnered up with 3M to post the stages of my project here on the 3M Industrial Community and this week I’m tackling a gable vent to keep a safe airflow in the shop.

I’ve got the gable vent designed and built – I just wanted to jump on the 3M Industrial Community to get the engineer’s advice on what would be the best method to adhere the gable vent. The dimensions are 18”x26”, it’s made of cedar and I want to adhere it to Douglas fir studs on the painted wood exterior of the blacksmith shop.

Can’t wait to get this project completed and start using my shop!
