Marking deck beams

Now its time for the deck-beams. There are three types of beams
I'll start with two of them first, the main thinner beams and the two
thicker beams above the legs.

All the beams are cut to a rough length and layed in place.

Next up two jigs to help mark out the compound angles
on the tenons on the beams.

One of the jigs in work, this one offsets the angle so that
the tenons sit at the right height.

Here are the two thicker deck-beams roughed out and in

All the beams marked out and ready for me to cut the tenons
