so I was given some homework, and as it was cooler in the workshop this morning I got started, wood was cut out, sanding and shaping occurred and now its got too hot to work out there a quick coat of stain was applied, once that is dry I will get some varnish on (once its cooled down again.)

the handles will need plugging after fixing, and the plugs sanding down, but I thought a couple of coats of varnish just to protect them a little and make them look a bit better, they will be varnished properly at a later date.

The old one were screwed from under neath as no deck beams in that area so not plugs required, you can varnish them to within an inch of your lift :default_biggrin:

I have made these with screw holes in the top, but we could use machine screws instead with large washers.
