    Supposed to mean sexually attractive, however recently it has become a word of ambiguous meaning that morons use when unable to think of a better adjective for something they like.

    Very nice! I haven’t seen that detail on a deck before. Thanks for sharing.

    When you build your rail system on top of the deck it is weak. Incorporate your post from the ground up to the handrail and it's much stronger and doubles as your decking corner.. On the decking trim is pretty but it won't get you extra jobs and creates that ugly gap. I just float my decking to the end and cut flush with the joist. No future ugly cracks and no extra work. The homeowners are just as happy.

    Outstanding. I love the half-lap detail. I've been trying various butt joints and flying transitions around corners. You're right as rain that the miter looks good the day you put it in and not-so-good a few days later. The chamfered decking cut is sweet too.

    A boarder is someone paying to stay in your home.
    And they don’t want to live on your deck, especially the sexy ones.

    I would have used a rubber mallet at the end for tapping the lap joint down as not to mar the wood!
    Good idea though!

    There's quite a difference between a "boarder" and a "border." I think you meant the latter.

      @utubewillyman But probably, less on your deck and more within the walls, ¿no?

    Drill the lap and drive in a couple dials. Then it would be super sexy

  • Chris Moore

    What would make it look even more professional is if you were not face nailing your planks. The moisture gets in those nail holes and causes the boards to fail sooner than they should. You make a pretty deck and you are trying to make it last, but face nailing the planks is not the way to go. Build better.

    I like that detail,I’m changing the 2x6 top rail on my railings that the builder 45’d and they opened up just like you described,this should take care of the problem and looks awesome thanks for the tip, great video btw.
    Also locks the railings together for more stability 👍

  • Bill Brockmann

    You've kick-ass woodworking skills, but it's "border" or as the Quebecois say, "frontière." The term has to do with boundaries, not lumber. Thank you for indulging my OCD tendencies. I do hardly any woodwork these days, but I live vicariously through you and those like you. From the days when I worked on historical restorations of old homes I remember a job with a man who'd been a carpenter since shortly after God invented wood from whom I learned a ton. You're just a pup in comparison, but I learn from you, too.

    Nice work , but stupid choice of words. My brother has a renovations company and he laughed and said that's kinda dumb to say.

    As someone who builds decks with great precision, detail and pride, I don't have any clients in Toronto that would ever pay for these types of details, or pay for this pace. Mostly, I have never ever been working with a budget that allowed CLEAR cedar 2x6 decking, picture framing... We use 5/4 deck boarding, knotty grade, when we aren't forced to use PT.
    This deck you're building with the 6x6 clear posts, etc must be costing 20k in materials alone.
    Nice work, but it's dream land.

      @rmbuilder1 I have great customers. in the next nicest neighborhoods. No one is gonna pay $30 bucks + a sq ft for clear 2 by cedar decking.
