Always fun to scribe large beams.

Re: Scribing Thread.


So , I don't have a good scribe come up very often (aside from the inevitable baseboard to cabinet scribe)... So I can't offer a lot for tips.
But these two were fun... Cabinet bottoms for undermount lighting.
The transformer and wire were already in place and I just had to drill out the holes for the lights, and place the bottom back on. Except they were against a stone wall.
I used Jack Clamps to put the bottoms in position, proud of the face of the stone, keeping the thickness of the front rail in mind, plus the gap from the wall. The scribe was done with a Staedler compass and a 2h lead. The cut was done with a jigsaw and a down cut blade. Touched up with files and rasps.
It didn't come out "perfect", but the fit was good.
Only had these two pieces, so they were going in no matter what.

I used to inlay a flat rock in to a lot of my decks, this one was in 1996 using the original Trex, I forget how I did it but it must have been fun!

That deck looks remarkably at home in 2017 for being over 20 years old. Nice design work, man.
Ocean view is kind of cheating, but I'd use it if it were offered to me too.

Oh that pic is probably 15 years old, the trex did deteriorate after 10 years or so, you can see it if you look close

Trex doesn't make any of the products they made prior to 2009.

Re: Scribing Thread.


Yeah this is it after 12 years, really not that bad considering ..

a bleach solution took care of a lot of it on the steps except for those splotches.

this was the original stuff, a little fuzzy, there were even wood flakes on the surface :-) Attached it with DBTs https://www.strongtie.com/deckties_decks/dbt_tie/p/dbt

that was the most beautiful site I ever got to spend time in :-)

Gotta hand it to the internet. 20 years ago there were a lot fewer ways to see what guys on the CA coast were scribing.

Re: Scribing Thread.


We came back years later to do some repair and refinish. Some of the original splined joints had opened up a bit so we just plowed across the joint and inlaid a strip in there.


also replaced the cables, even stainless doesn't hold up right on the ocean!
