Deck and floor board spacing diagram

Out of Square If your deck is slightly out of square (different widths), calculate results for both widths, and set out each end to suit.

If necessary, adjust number of deck boards to match in both calculations, and see if different board gaps at each end of deck are acceptable, compared to equal gaps and cutting the last board at an angle.

Mark-out

DON'T BREATH THE DUST If you're cutting concrete, stone or ANYTHING and there's DUST - DON'T TAKE THE RISK
Don't cut it, or cut it wet so there's NO DUST - Silicosis Sucks

How should we spell it?
