« Part 8: Railing Up Part 9 of Upper Deck series no next part

Well I’m done. This past weekend I installed the top rail and this evening I finished the leg bracing and prettied it up a little. Forgive the pictures as it is dark outside and I wanted to post this tonight.

A close-up of the finished railing.

Here is the prettying up. The metal panels we actually found in someone’s bulk garbage pickup.

So as a recap we have come from here . . .

To here . . . .

To here . . .

An impressive piece of work Zuki. And a great find on the panels, they enhance your work perfectly.

I see that DW has already started decorating so I guess it’s time you started on your rocking chair, eh?

Really nice work.

Great results!

You should quit your day job and become a carpenter/builder,or failing that, you could produce step by step guides for the Canadian homeower/handyman.

Tks all.

Yes Russel DW does have a couple of pot of flowers on the deck. Not sure what they are. She has the green thumb . . . mine is usually bruised, full of splinters or cut. :-)

Hey Spud. My day job is a little more lucrative. I would either have to charge a WHOLE LOT OF MONEY or get really really really fast at building. Oh . . . where are the picks of your shop and the sofa table?
