Hi, I’m trying something new today. I’m trying to run a slideshow.
It shows the construction of one of my decks at our cabin. I don’t care to cut trees down, so in order to fit a deck on this location , I discovered that using hexagonal sections fit the best.

Hi, Dick. I don’t think the slide show is working.

Hi Dick;
....now I’m really impressed by what you’ve done!!!

First of all, very nice deck there and then you go and put it all on video for us to enjoy. What with your great woodworking skills and then the techno-bloging, I’m wondering what surprises you have in store for us yet?

That lake is beautiful, do you canoe?
Very good show, Dick.
GODSPEED,
Frank

Yes we do canoe, our lake is about a mile long, & has an erratic shape to it. We used to canoe around the perimeter evey morning. It would take about an 1 1/2 hours.

A beautiful Fall Morning

Well the music was a little “skippy” , but other than that, I’ts probably one of the nicest decks I’ve seen. I’m not a conventional kinda guy, so i really like the hexegon. it also allows you to add to it whenever you want to

Dick – Well I got to enjoy your slideshow after all he fixing and its great. Excellent work on putting the slideshow together. Your cabin looks wonderful and I really like the lake setting. Very nice work on the deck. Your carentry skills are outstanding. I like the built in benches and table. Your ending photo says it all – great deck, great setting and great sunset!
