Sorry about the time lapse... time flies when you're at your real job. Just a quick update on the faux boulders. I finally started the large waterfall in the back corner of the tiki hut. This is basically the same process as the smaller boulders except I constructed a metal lathe shape using metal construction studs for the framework. That bump-out on the front is where I ran 3" PVC tubing in order to provide access for the water tubing and the power for the underwater lights. There will be four large boulders making up the waterfall when it's done. Let's hope my next post doesn't take so long!

Wow, professional looking work! This was exactly what I needed to see, I wasn't sure how to make standard fir dimensional lumber look good. Never thought of using a router for pattern carving.

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted pics of my backyard tiki hut (yet to be named). I have an excuse though, I've been working on one of these. Cole will be soon able to enjoy the fruits of my aching back!

So I finally got the deck built, and I sanded it all down today. I plan to stain and seal tomorrow if the weather looks good. I'll have more pics and details soon of the waterfall feature in the back corner.

I'm re-roofing my patio and incorporating an A-frame and thought I did a lot of oddball saw cuts last weekend, but it was nothing compared to your project! You don't hardly have two boards that are the same length! You've obviously got a LOT of time in on that. It looks great!
