We have planked as far as we can before we move our staging planks..... so before we do that we are installing our stanchion posts which will be planked over when we continue the planking. They are looking fantastic.
They will be sealed, painted, cut off, and routered. They are made of 4 x 4 solid oak and they will support the top rail.
We will then drop our staging about 3 feet and continue with the planking. There are about 7 strakes left to do. Whoo hoo!
