Great build. Did you have any problem lining up the slats in the 4×4?

Hey carpentrybyrnm could you tell me what angle you cut your grooves and how far apart? My wife really likes it so I guess I will try my hand at this. Thanks

The slats are spaced 3 1/2” apart and the angle worked out nicely at 45 degrees. When I drew it up on scketchup it looked the best at 53 but after a few test cuts on a scrap 4×4 the angle looked best at 45. Of you are looking for more privacy you could space it at 2 3/4

Lining up the grooves took a bit of time but I made one ” master post” and took all the measurements from that one. A speed square was my best friend during the layout. Grooves are about 3/4” deep the wet boards were tight and the boards that were dryist cupped a bit so were also quite tight

Hi. I like it! What is your thought on the direction the slats point? People can see down onto the deck from the second floor next door but the deck is lit up by the sun. Does that matter? Which direction does this point (where’s the sun)? Thanks.

The slats have to go that direction otherwise it is a safety violation. If the slats were angled the opposite way it would be considered climbable. Where there neighbor sits on there deck (once its built) they will have 100 percent privacy.
