I've designed a method where I'll use a 6x6 for the post in question and notch it out according to this diagram:



I'll just drill four holes through the back of that post (two on each beam) and use some through-bolts to secure it. What do you guys think?

Yes that should work very well...Do use washers with your bolts ...I would put some type sealer on the wood parts of the post you cut before you set in your 2x8's...Just a thought...

Doing the same thing here.
Doesn't the beam have to set a certain amount on the post?
