My brother and I work in central Ny We were re building a second story deck and refered to national codes and found it required 6X6posts..Well we needed a beam saddle to go from our post to our beam..We couldn't find anythingat the local build centers so we improvised..We bought four 6X6 post chairs and bolted two of them together at the top of the post to straddle our beam..another innovative idea others could use worked just swell with a little modification...
