Here's my latest woodworking project, earthmoving, project, stone moving project .....

No before pictures, but the narrow, 30 wide" with 3 steps needed to go. :thumbdown:

Now there are 5 easy steps from the deck to the drive which slopes down around the house down to the water. I did this project over 5 times :eek:, took 3 days of 90 degree heat and about 5 clothing changes per day. I took the afternoons off and went inside to cool down. Why 3 times? Because the rise and the run had to work out using the 6X8" timbers set into the sand and leveled right to left and front to back....and I can't seem to follow my own drawing. :no: Good thing sand is easy to level. I used Thompsons
transparent stain, 2 coats, and ceramic coated screws. It should last for a while.

Very nicely done!

I know what you mean about doing a project over and over. I had to do the same thing a few years ago laying a brick sidewalk from our deck to driveway.:thumbdown:

I really like your handrails - but aren't you going to miss those clamps in the shop?:laughing:

Nope, won't miss 'em

You can't have too many clamps, but I know where those are if I need 'em. I'm spacing the handrails off the posts using 3/4" galvanized pipe couplers and through bolts.

He's scratchin' his head...why 3 times over?

Now I need 100 2 x 6 deck boards at $6.97ea.
