    Well I decided to replace my old bridge with a new one. I had fun trying to put this together.
    First Picture is the old bridge.
    Second Picture is the new one looking toward the road.

    Blame uncle Bob, not only are you a fantastic cook, you are a great craftsman too. That is really a sharp bridge and very sturdy built also. That is a two thumbs up right there buddy. Thanks for sharing with us Bob.

    J.C. the old one was rotting away, it was about to fall in the ditch and I didn't want to be the one in the bottom of ditch.

    FIRST I WILL SAY THAT IS A THREE THUMBS UP AND I SAY THIS BECAUSE YOU MADE IT FLAT AND NOT A ARCH IN IT. THE ARCH TYPE WOULD GET SLICK WHEN WET.
    NOW I WILL HAVE TO TAKE BACK ONE THUMBS UP. WIFE NOW WANTS ONE IN THE YARD BECAUSE ITS CUTE.

    GOOD WORK ROBERT

    Nice looking bridge over the old moat Sir Bob.

    And I will remember this for my future deck building projects. If you come and help uncle Bob, you only have to work half a day, does not matter to me which 12 hrs you work.
