This is kinda of off the subject of wood working. I do all sorts of wood working and construction projects. My grandparents need a small deck with a wheel chair ramp. It started out being about 10×10. After all of the families input this is how it turned out. I was going back thru looking at the pictures of the deck. note in picture number 4 how my middle finger is bandaged. Ya I got a little to comfortable and ran a circular saw across the end of my finger. It didnt cut it off, it just split it in have. It deffinatly made me slow down on my work and think a little bit more.

In my mind bigger is better when it comes to decks. Your design is great. Lots of room to move and enjoy the space. Very nice!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brady, that is Definitely woodworking! And don’t you just Hate it when you get blood dripping all over good wood? I get very angry with myself when that happens. It is good you weren’t hurt worse. I especially like your artistic patterning of the wheelchair ramp. Beautiful deck job!
