My neighbor saw the deck I built and asked me to build him this. I got a picture on line, made some modifications and started digging. I actually don’t like digging post holes.

Great job. Very nice looking deck.

I like gardening and landscaping too, but with limited space around my present house, I coud not do more than just watering the potted plants.

Looks great Mark. that’s going to be a project for my backyard this spring…...might be “picking” your brain if I run into any problems.

Very nice. Once the vines grow over that, it’ll be an oasis in the city. Thanks for the post.

Looks really good and you have a lucky neighbor to have you in the neighborhood! I am with you on digging post holes. I don’t mind the post hole digger I just hate the handles!!!

Now this is something that would work for my deck. What are the wood sizes? The pieces on the very top are they square..hard to see. Very nice job and thanks for posting.

I used 4X4 treated lumber posts. The top part is deck planks with a 45* cut. The very top and slats are cedar. It took me about a day and a half due to the rain (I live in Seattle).

I like digging post holes, as long as I’m not the digger. Great job, I’m sure it will be enjoyed for years to come.

Nice project. As for digging holes, I look at it as practice for when I get into the doghouse at home. If I am building a deck, then it’s up to the low man on the team to dig the holes. We don’t use the long handled type though, we have a manual auger type, with access to another one, if there are lots of holes to dig, OR we’ll just rent a gas powered post hole auger.
