    This violates forum policy.

    Rent a reciprocating saw.

    If you are half-way intelligent, you will abandon this idea before you blow your face off.

    We do not discuss how to make explosives at PF.

    In addition, one would need permits from the local or state authorities to use explosives and to use them on one's property. Note that in many jurisdictions, it is illegal to possess fireworks or pyrotechics, and the use is regulated.

    One should demolish/dismantle one's shed in a more conventional way, e.g. with a recriprocating saw as suggested by Dave.
