Cedar Deck I built here at home with the help of both my son-in-laws and my wife.

Wow Jerry! I want one. How much did you shell out for all that good looking cedar?

Good job. I’m probably gonna copy this in the future. Not the near future though. Too big of a ‘honey-do’ list to deal with first.

What did you use for the border? Have you used Penofin before and are you happy with the results in the NW weather? GREAT looking deck.

Wow… It would really be a shame to walk on that. Did you actually put a gloss finish on it or are those just wet pictures?

The pictures are wet. The Penofin works OK, but the border was finished with Superdeck and seems to have held up better. All the cedar is a KD product by LP, and the border is simply the reverse side. Thanks for all the nice comments!

That’s absolutely beautiful.

Almost too nice to abuse like a deck. I’d be afraid to walk on it.

Of course, I say that about 30 minutes after standing on top of a coffee table I just finished to demonstrate to my wife that 4 coats of poly was probably sufficient.

Looks great. I prefer a more natural look, however, as long as you continue to reapply each year or two that deck should look great and last for years.
