This past fall had to replace an old porch stoop at my folks house. I had built the original in the nineties so it had a good run. She wanted it big enough to put the grill on since we were redoing it anyways. So I kept most of the design I used on the first one, thought it did okay. I am one of the few who build deck type structures and use things like a router and belt sanders to make everything friendly.

Due to unforseen situations and having to move, someone else will have to enjoy it for the rest of its time.

If I’d only waited a little longer, oh well, not exactly cabinets or furniture, but thought you all might like to see.

Impressive. I hope whoever reaps the benefits of your labor will appreciate it.

Nice work, and I’m sure whoever is using it will appreciate the quality, and the ‘friendly’ details….. I too smotth things out on projects like this… especially outside corners on rails and posts… it makes for nice details, and doesn’t take much time at all….. and is very appreciated the first time someone bumps into a corner on a post!

Great looking porch! Well made and sturdy, it should last for a long time for the family to enjoy. Great work!
