 Adding the Deck

Back in business after a  l-o-n-g  Winter! Next task is to add the deck.

A compound cut is required for these rear deck braces.

All three rear cross braces in place.

Lightweight is the goal here so I laminated rib stock for the front cross pieces.

The bungees are temorarily keeping the frame at the correct width until the cross pieces are installed.

Deck stringer in place.

Trimming off the tops (former bottoms) of the end pieces.

Starting a notch for stringer.

My wife took this arty shot!

The completed deck framing.
