    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Still working on the big deck. Had a 224″ of track on the ipe for the long straight cuts.

    Nice track setup. What are all those boxes on the deck?

    Those are the Buzon parts.

    Those Buzon’s make leveling your deck pretty simple. Or will you use them in another application?

    Dirty, the deck is looking good.

    On the job I’m on now we’ve been framing porches, and there’s going to be decking going over the concrete floor. Yesterday we put the joists down for one of the two porches. I’ve recently learned that the decking is going to be ipe. That should be interesting because I’ve never worked with the stuff before.

    You mentioned that the blade in you track saw is the Festool aluminum blade, but what blades did you use in your other saws? From your comments and pics I know you used at least your Sawsquatch and miter saw. Do standard framing blades work okay on ipe? What would you recommend?

    What type of blade you using to cut that ipe .

    The blade is a $95 festool blade for aluminum.

    Do you get your blades re-cut once they get dull .

    Always willing to learn .

    No they are under there to stay. It is a easy operation.

    On my 10″ Chop saw the boss got a 150$ hardwood blade it’s a Tenru. No standard framing blades work very poorly in ipe. It is a super hard wood. I know TaraC told me she uses Ipe Eater blades and she recommends them. They are not over here so the boss set me up with the best he could find. You will need a bow wrench too.

    So today we went up and helped the framers set some trusses. This is a chapel the company is building at the same job.

    That looks like a heavy truss.

    Nice that they were able to get a skyjack in there, how will they get it out once all the trusses are up?

    Wow those are some really big trusses. What kind of wood are they made of?

    Those are some great looking trusses. There’s some pretty long headers running down each side of the little chapel, plus a large window opening at the end. That place should have tons of natural light.

    Awesome stuff Dirty!! Those huge timber framed trusses are also called bents. Gorgeous stuff. I priced some bents for a rear covered porch project once. The company said they would ship them unassembled with instructions to put them together. Sounded pretty fun. I did not get to do that job but hoping to be able to some day.

    It is a shame you are working so close to all the scenery around Koalina 😉

    That’s going to look great. I’ve always liked the look of exposed trusses myself.

    I never did find out if cedar is a native species there. The only thing I have heard of from the island is Koa, but I am sure more than that and palm trees grow there.

    All of our building lumber comes out of the Pacific north west.
