Let me give you some back ground….my father had about 700 2×4s cut between 13 and 15 inches long…I won’t bother getting into why….when I would go visit I would constantly drive away pondering what to do with this pile of seemingly useless “fire wood”. I pulled into my driveway and looked at my ugly concrete front porch, then it hit me. After about 5 rough sketches, this is what I came up with. All of the 2×4s needed ripped to 3” wide and cut to 12” long. IT TOOK A VERY LONG TIME. I am aware that this is not fine wood working, however it was a labor of love. Despite its many imperfections (primarily my unwillingness to plain over 400 boards to the same thickness) I am very proud of my 3 week journey. If you want a deck that no one else has or is willing to piece together…HERE IT IS. Thanks for looking.
