Bob, from an article in the July 1996 Family Handyman magazine, they did a 12 square pavillion (like a gazebo except square in 5/4 bullnose decking, 30 pound felt, No. 2 cedar shingles, 8d common galvanized nails for decking to rafters and 3d galvanized box nails for the shingles. If you do use thin plywood, remember that the nails will show thru the bottom. Also remember that you might be in an area that gets heavy wind loading and negative pressure will lift a roof without good nailing practices.
