Mini Post: Deck Rebuild –
By Wayne Halm –
Time to dress up the deck planks – that’s a fancy way of saying routing and sanding.
For the deck planks I used construction grade 2x6s because I wanted the strength. But they did require a good bit of prep work before staining and sealing.
It took a while, but a router, belt sander, and stubborn operator were enough to smooth out the planks.

I bought a low end router to round the edges. The price ($49.99) seemed good – then I discovered that the bits cost almost as much. I bought it anyway, I don’t want Sally or my puppies to get any splinters.
Sanding was a full day’s work. However, there was time to stain and seal a few of the deck planks.
Things didn’t look all that different at the end of the day. I didn’t matter, I knew good work had been done.
Check back tomorrow and see what happens.
Then — Come play golf with me.
