Old railing is rickety and rotten.
an entire section is weird â€¦
Probably for a hot tub that was never installed.
So I bought this lumberâ€¦.
Began making Mortise & Tenon joints Using a Mortiseing tool
The big bit wouldnâ€™t work; had to use a smaller one
and use a hammer & Chisel to make the Tenon part..
Thompsonâ€™s water seal on these puppies. they took me hours to make
Tore off all the old railing, installed a post in the corner & put the first 2 joists
Keep the old angled pieces or no..?
Hereâ€™s where it is
Added another joistâ€¦
..And got all of them installed finally
oops the floorboards are too short, Iâ€™ll need a filler piece perpendicular to the rest
got all the ends cut evenly
not done yet but done for the day
