Amazing Fine Detail - Fish Design In Deck Boards


Just stumbled upon this on the Trex website. This is really cool. Are these pieces glued to a treated piece of ply? I can't imagine that's all Cortexed in there. Anyone ever do anything like this that wants to show it off?

I'd love to incorporate a design like this in my own deck if you know any one that could do this and would ship it to me. PM me pricing details.

My thought is to get a treated piece of ply, waterproof tape the heck out of it, glue pieces in. I think I have a homeowner that wants this. Think it's a good approach?

Template - Band Saw for design

Depending on layout / design
trim joists & use another fullboard under or 1/2 marine ply plus appropriate blocking while still leaving gap

apply pieces to backerboard with adhesive & trim screw or hidden fasteners like cortex

Marine ply and cement backer board? What do you think of notching the joists, cement backer board, and gluing to that. With blocking behind cement board. Would that eventually crack?

Re: Amazing Fine Detail - Fish Design In Deck Boards


no cement board - either deck board or marine ply ripped the width of regular board - you still need things to drain / dry
Not really a fan of notching - I know that's what I said above - maybe header it off & then trim down joist in that area or at least make sure blocking is at start & end of any notching
