In an outdoor setting, natural wood decks enhance the tranquility and relaxation the backyard environment is meant to provide. The balance of good design, skilled craftsmanship, and the warmth of wood is a combination second to none. To inspire the beauty and artisanship that wood evokes, deck builder and teacher Mark Clement presides over our ongoing day long deck project.
