When we cut our picture frame boards we typically use a miter saw to make precise cuts. This deck has a radius and the custom curved boards have to be cut with a circular saw. The tricky part is that you cannot read & draw the angles on a curved board using the same methods used on a board that is straight. This corner of the deck has a straight board meeting up with this curved board. .
To achieve a nice mitered corner first, we have to find the correct angle. We lay both boards in place and allow one to sit over top of the other. Next, we mark the outside and inside edges of each board at their bisecting points. Then, I simply connect the points marked on each board and viola we have our angles!
We clamp a straight edge onto the curved board to achieve a ‘miter saw’ like cut. Only 15 more of these cuts on this deck!😅 .

Wow! 9 incredible years already!! 🥂Happy Anniversary Jen! Can’t believe you haven’t left or stabbed me by now. Love you so much😘 I’m not sure how long ago this pic was taken but it had to be over 10 years ago.
This porch is about finished! We are ready for our screens and @railcraftcentral
railings! This screen porch is loaded with features. Everything is wrapped with @azekbuildingproducts
and the decking is from Azek’s Vintage Weathered Teak with a double Dark Hickory border. There is a gas fireplace with a cedar mantel. A TV will be mounted above the mantel and cable will come up through the tech tube. The ceiling fan is mounted below our exposed cedar rafters and cedar T&G. A dimmer switch controls the custom lighting that is mounted to the wall headers. As you walk out through a retractable screen door you’ll see a spiral staircase with Azek Vintage treads. #screenporch #minnesotalife #fireplace #azekbuildingproducts #bugfree #boosted #decklife #deckbuilder #outdoorliving #hdtv
