Curved mahogany deck

This is a curved mahogany deck of my own design, with custom railing incorporating both stainless steel cable and wood infill. Wood infill was chosen at the wraparound to help hide the grill and visually separate it as a cooking area. The rest is all 316 SS cable to maintain views from inside the house as well from the deck. I'm still in the process of applying the skirting to hide the PT framing. Good construction practices have been followed, including all SS screws, deck joists protected with stick on membrane, all end grain sealed with a waxy end sealer. Penofin has been used to beautify and protect the wood.

There could always be improvements, but so far none I could think of. Time will tell!
