Backyard Deck

In my first ever attempt at woodworking I decided to build a deck! By myself. Ryobi cordless tools (that I had borrowed from neighbor) made my project so much easier. I was using my father's Craftsman plug-in tools and constantly had to switch out cords when my neighbor offered me his tools. made my project a breeze!

  • I'm a pro carpenter and that's as nice as I've seen. Very tastefully done! Just a suggestion: I don't gap the boards when using treated lumber. I install them snug...after they dry, they shrink and basically gap themselves about 1/4" which is what's normally recommended. Great looking deck!
