For each deck: Set the frame pieces in place so that the short ends sit inside the long sides, and then lay the plywood deck on top, using the deck's square corners to adjust the frame pieces until they are square. Lift the deck and apply wood glue to the top edge of each frame piece and set the plywood deck back in place. Adjust the frame pieces until each sits flush with the outer edge of the deck.
