My father made the flooring of the patio at our house, and we decided to construct a roof for it.
This is what we have built so far: the main frame structure



Thanks for reading and watching! I’m going to post more images as we get closer to finishing the project.

I would try and cut a piece of scrap and splice it in there…with some waterproof epoxy

Make a matching one of the other side, and call it a design feature.

Cut a piece from the other side and put it in this side.

That was my first thougt, David. :)

The piece of scrap is a good idea (too) but I think I can’t make a matching piece because the whole cutting was a bit rough…
Perhaps I will take the time to get it fine.

Thanks All!

Have your say...
