My friend wanted to replace their front porch, which was in very bad shape. I built this porch for them, just kind of making it up as I went along. It is made from pressure-treated woods and finished with Flood Natural-Tone Wood Finish.

Good looking porch. I like the way the finish turned out. After seeing this I am thinking bout doing my porch with this stain as it’s about time to redo. .

Thanks, all for the feedback. While I enjoy projects such as this, I can’t wait to get my shop set back up and get working again in earnest.
