What are you building your patio deck out of? I helped a friend build one for his cottage in 4x8 sections so he could store them in the winter. That way the don't float away in the spring. Just 2x6 PTG. It was a beautiful project involving many beer.
I see what you mean - odd, they work on four other forums I am in - ? But you can see the little ones, right?
I got a GREAT SCORE on material, Rev - my neighbour works for an outfit that makes flat-deck trailers. It's PLYWOOD STRIPS, same width as 2x6 - but 1 1/4" THICK!
Plus its coated on the two broad sides, and embossed with thousands of little "hash-marks" on the top-side (non-skid). He brought me the 40 eight-foot strips, equivalent of four sheets. He says its worth over 200 bucks a sheet (and I believe it; I've never SEEN plywood this thick) - I got it all for 55 bucks.
Two coats of Deck-paint, on all sides and ends, and this sucker will out-live ME!
And yes, I am building 4'x8' sections, for the same reason.
