Locust Walnut and Cherry Backyard Deck

David Brake


Project Description
Locust, Walnut, and Cherry “floating” Deck. While the foundation was built with treated lumber, 100% of the deck and 100% of the benches and decorative features of the deck was from lumber milled with the LT10. I designed the deck and built it over the course of 2 years from the time I cut the first Locust tree down. This was the FIRST major project for me. I had made some benches and tables and chairs using wood I had milled with the LT10 (purchased in 2015.) In fact, I had never used a sawmill until I brought it home and put it together in my driveway 6 years ago. I worked on it mainly in the Summer months as I am a Librarian and Coach at the local High School. It is fun to step out onto the deck and know that I designed built it myself using trees from my own woods and that it probably will still be here when my children are my age…

Finished Dimensions

Money Saved
I literally have no way of knowing how to calculate that.
