First time build Ches17LT.
I am ready to plane the shear clamps and install deck beams. My question is regarding the order of these steps. The manual shows to install the beam first, then plane the clamps to match. It seems to me that if I install the beam slightly high or slightly low this could kill my chance of having a consistent flow of the radius from the side panel edge, across the shear clamp and onto the beam.
Is there a reason for installing the beam prior to working the radius on the shear clamps or can I plane them down and then install the beam flush to their finished top surface?
