Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


The stairs look like they are expecting elephants to come visiting. Heavy duty.
Looking good.

If you've noticed the treads being a little misplaced looking, they aren't fastened down yet. Waiting on inspection, Monday.

Never seen a cordless worm, bet it don't bog down easy. Makita has always been a very good brand anything, even when other tools got cheapened, Makita didn't.

Re: A day in the life of a deck builder


Clean scribes and good spacing really add a lot to the finish! The connecting block wall is a large radius makes the look that much better.
