    Howdy all,
    Every winter my wife comes up with a list of "honeydo" items,(as in "honey do this, honey do that") to keep me busy and to help make up for summer when I'm always working. This winter she really wanted a deck, so when I was out of the country, in Israel, she ordered all the lumber....SURPRISE!

    Anyway, this was a fun project, I've never built a deck, and don't work much with wood, more of a metal shop guy. I thought of using copper piping for the balusters, I think it looks cool and will look cooler as the copper turns green.

    It isn't done yet, but it's close


    Whooaaa! Who's that ugly cuss, working on the deck?

    The dogs like the new deck!

    The kids have been trying diligently to get one of the dogs to go down the slide. They roll balls down, throw down doggie treats, all to no avail:laugh::laugh:

    I am not as adventurous at things I know nothing about. My answer to that would be "Honey Do Not Ever Ask Me To Do That!"

    Looks very nice!

    I didn't even see the slide, that would be fun for the adults too!!
