Carpentry - Rebate and trim height of timber posts

Due date
Saturday, 6th Jan 2018
I am looking for an experienced woodworker to rebate 10 timber beams on 2 sides. The beams also need to be trimmed to height. All posts have been marked to the correct height.

The timber beams are 175mm x 175mm Ironbark posts.

I will be recessing 240mm x 45mm timber into these posts - hence why I need the rebate. I would also like the top of the post routed on all sides once trimmed (router and bit provided).

7 posts have relatively easy access with a ladder - with the remaining 3 posts requiring access via a garden bed (please see photos). The rebate of the timber starts at 2400mm high and therefore all work will be done on a ladder.

The work requires a circular saw (and recipro if saw blade does not cut deep enough through the post center) and chisel work (no chainsaws).

Hi Gary, Beautiful table. I think the rebated beams will be a synch given the quality of the table. When can you do the posts?
Hey Andrew I can come on the 2nd or 3rd if that suits you? Do you have the router and bit, as I don’t have mine at the moment I have everything else I’ll need
Let me know Andrew cheers
Do either of those days work for you Andrew? So I can organise myself
