I did this project for the little lady at my house…She is very happy with it.
I’m shocked just how much sun the top will cut. The deck is quite a bit cooler in the afternoon. Now it’s on to a new garden shed!

That is one fine looking project! Congratulations on obviously having fun and pleasing the little lady at the same time.

This is exactly what I need on my deck. I love it. Where would I find plans for it?

I have been researching and brain storming similar solutions to the deck/excessive sun conundrum. Question, did you “retro-fit” this on an existing railing?
nicely done!

It was a “retro-fit” and as far as plans go I looked at a few magazines and deck books but in the end I just “winged it”. I be happy to answer any questions.
It also helps to have an artist in the house. She was very helpful with the proportion and the detail.

What type of wood did you use for it?
