Default reclaimed wood deck surround

Today there is sadly no racing on so my Sunday is going to be sorting the little seating area surround at the back of the garden,the wood is reclaim from the new roof i just put on my house,i have no real plan i am just going for rustic yet tidy,first job is to cut it all down to lengths of 44 inches and i will make it up from there.

Not sure, but that workbench photo may belong in the "You're doing it wrong" photo section.

Had a spare hour or so yesterday so i gave it another lick over,removed the broken fence behind and replaced it with a trellis panel(needs painting),i need to clear the rest of the netting and overgrown shit from a neighboring garden over the back so i can get 2 more trellis panels up,small bike hut needs to come down before it falls down and replace it with a small new shed.

Pretty full on week this week so it will have to be done bit by bit sadly.

Just do not pee in a bush of stinging nettles and have the dog pull you through them

Had a few hours spare again so started a little play deck for the grankids opposite the one i have been fixing(great way to use up all this reclaim shit),again it is early days and the plan is a blur in my mind,tomorrow evening i will finish the top and work out a hand rail,it will also double up as a place to use the BBQ
