These are not your standard deck rails. Most deck rails are ornate and intended to be a feature to behold. Our goals were to be able to see through the rails to the woods beyond. At first we looked into a wood top rail and cables for the rest, but that was way too expensive. This is a happy medium. We are very happy with it. Once again Tom Colucci finds a way to create what we ask for.
Now I just have to finish the finish the screen frames, install the new screen, and pop on the trim. There may be some planing to do since Tom straightened a bump the roof line when he jacked up that area. Nothing is square on this cabin, which is part of its charm. Always adjusting, planing, trimming when one improvement is made.
Instead of buying very expensive cedar trim for the screens, I am just to rip some of my own on the table saw from a 1x12 cedar board. The one inch is really 3/4 inch, which is perfect. That will save a big wad of cash.
New old truck. A 2002 Ford f-150 with 95k miles. It runs and rides like new. As you can see Finn is very happy with it.
