Outdoor deck and table

  • May 24, 2016


Moved to a new place in November and right outside the door it is a flood area of the yard. I have a kid, 3 dogs and I was tired of stepping off my little porch into water or mud. That alone created issues as it has been raining so much in south TX that the ground was wet, muddy or it was raining on the days I wanted to work, not to mention trying to level the deck on soft ground. I knew the deck would come out nice, but it came out far more beautiful than I imagined. I knew when I set out to make a deck with a main are 14'X15' it was going to be big, but we truly love it.

The table and benches was a must, I grew up with picnic tables and eating outside in the summer, looking at lightning bugs and I wanted to create the same for my daughter. She loved helping me with these projects as well.

  • This looks AMAZING! Awesome job! Here's to clean feet and a killer backyard set up.

  • Nice job. I really like the retro blue Ryobi drill. I still have my original blue 4 piece set and at least 3 other blue tools. They last. Enjoy your summer.

  • So true. My first Ryobi tools were the drill/light combo kit. I got it when I bought my first house in 2003 and it has seen a ton of use. The drill even spent a year in my special education classroom when I built small projects with my students. I still have both along with a blue circular saw and the brad/nail gun
