Getting it off the floor
Day 6: April 17, 2002 - 5.0 hrs
More shop setup - Reinforcements looked fine after removing weights. Removed pieces and took apart the deck. Built three sawhorses and had to call it a day. The sawhorses are 30" wide and approximately 32" high -- I think this will provide a comfortable height for working.

Day 7: April 18, 2002 - 4.0 hrs
Bevelled Sheer Edges - Built a fourth sawhorse and used OSB board to make a bench 30" wide by 20' long. After trimming the deck reinforcements I used the low-angle block plane to bevel the sheer edges. The block plane worked very well for this task.
