Glass and paint with bright sapele accents. Many have done a veneered deck and I thought that's what I wanted years ago. Then I started seeing pictures of the old Thompsons with painted decks and how clean and simple that looks.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

The front deck is all nailed on. In a way that was the last big glue up. The rest of the decking should be a breeze.
