September 24th of 2013, I wrote about the removal of our front deck, running it all through the sander and then putting it all back on. If you remember, the 36-year-old deck was made of heart redwood which is no longer available. All redwood available now is farm raised, lacking the quality of old stock.
The deck hit a couple snags. Literally, a snag. A splinter off the redwood caught on the sander belt which caused it to fail. It took a while to get it replaced. Then weather came into play.
All excuses aside, it is now complete. I should have taken a picture before the snow melted. As you can see, there are mud tracks on it. I am very pleased. Now for the back deck.
The next project slated to begin this spring is to remove all the front landscaping and start over.
