I picked up a couple pieces of redwood yesterday one was a good solid and clear 9" 2x4. I will be using this for top and back strips. I also picked up a thinner 4" wide piece that is 10' long I was going to use for the rails. Problem is after measuring it, only measures 1/2" thick. If I do not use a 3/4" triangles will this throw me off considerably? Has anyone ran into this?

And the rail strips would sit like this (see attachment, the flats are exaggerated for illustration purposes) This should work for you, but let me know what shape you are building and I will double check my calculations...

Thanks I can see how that would work. I played around with it a little today and see how I can make it work, but I think since it is my first with this method I am going to go with some pine rails of the correct size and use the 1/2 for some accents on the deck and back. The plans are for the 9'2" Thanks again
