On this deck all existing structure was maintained we simply redid the top deck boards post and rails. This little corner angle happened to be the perfect location for what I had in mind.

Test Fit:

Using a 4ft water trough I positioned between the two post to make sure it would fit as intended without taking up too much deck space. This sizing was perfect.

Making Braces:

Using a 2×6 I cut to the width between the two post. I laid the 2×6 on top of the post carefully aligning and marked the angles. Using a jigsaw I cut out each corner this allowed the brace to slide tightly between each post. I then made 2 additional exactly the same.
