Building a deck for my backyard. It had one on when we bought the place but it was very old and wobbly so we ripped it down. Fast forward 2 years and now we are putting up a new one. Decided to go with green treated wood primarily due to the cost and easy availability. I also had been making adirondack chairs and found out all of the cool colors they make stain in now!
the deck is 13’x12’
this was also my first attempt at making stairs, only ruined one extra 2×12 :)
found a picture of the railing somewhere online and decided to copy it.
The railings aren’t attached yet, they are just sitting on the deck. When I attach them, they’ll be off the floor a bit.
My dado blade got a workout with all those spindles. Already had to clean all the green gunk off of it. Treated wood sure gums up the blades but clean them off and they work like new again.
