  1. Thanks for making these informative videos! Do you have any videos on how to replace rotted porch soffits? Ours are made of wood and out of place and it seems like its time for a replacement.

  2. I see several comments saying he made those cuts with the Sawzall. He just used the Sawzall to cut out the middle because the circular saw couldn't make deep enough cuts.

  3. I worked on a horse barn once and the lead guy cut the 6×6 pt post a little short, instead of buying another $60 6×6 we drilled three holes in the end and inserted rebar then hammered on a foot long 6×6 piece. I hope no one goes cutting into it one day.

  4. Okay day three on this project for us….WARNING NOT for amateurs!!!!!! Our joints do not match regardless of how we have tried. Take my advice hire a professional or find an alternative. It has been one of the worst experiences for us! Two posts now I am considering plain 5×5 cedar posts even though I love the turns of our old posts they were rotted on the bottom. We are simply handyman carpenters as far as diy projects go. We had no clue after watching this video how impossible it is to match the joints. Tom you made it look so easy.
