« Part 7: The first bench is done Part 8 of New Deck series no next part

Well today I got to working on the second bench.

I assembled it and brought it over to the deck and trimmed up the straight bench and the curved bench so that they fit in the corner of the deck.

I then went and got the trim router with a 1/4” roundover (got to make it kid friendly) and a sander to get rid of the saw marks, saw cuts and roundover where the trim router won’t reach.

I did the edges on both surfaces of the benches and sanded both of them.

Here are the finished benches.

and from the back.

Now she’s asking for a ceiling fan.

Planter boxes next.

Great looking deck Karson. The specs seem to be creeping a bit larger. What’s after the ceiling fan? :)

Richard: Does the ceiling fan require the GFCI protection.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Love the subtle curve! Are the light posts full size or did you clad them? Love the light fixtures, also.

Karson, The deck looks great. I love the open look withthe additional seating added. Look forward to seeing the planter boxes as my wife is asking for some so we can keep the deer at bay.
