Biggest party night of the year

I spent the night before Thanksgiving drilling holes in our deck posts. The cable rails will be 1/8", so the holes are 1/4". And we will have double posts on the corners with spacers in between; I overdrilled the holes on the spacers (1/4") so that passing the cables through three sets of holes won't be impossible.

Stained and ready to go:

Assembling the double posts:

Sarah's brother Greg on the business end of the ladder (he was in charge of bolting the posts to the deck):

The finished product:

Deck looks great. Now your project checklist can read:
framing the deck, check
floor of deck, check
Framing sides of deck, check
bolting the rails, check
posting pics on blog, check
Are you sure you don't want me to sit down with you and write your checklist?!?
