Hypothetically, if I was building an elevated deck how much weight can an individual up right 4 x 4 hold at a hight of 5 feet? It’s Redwood. Also hypothetically, if I were to have committed a no-no and attached my cross beams to the side of said 4 X 4 with half-inch galvanized steel bolts, what’s the sheer strength of said bolts? I’ve tried to find info online and I’ve got a lot of conflicting stuff so I was hoping someone with some first-hand experience could tell me.

there are other points/things that the deck is anchored to it will bear weight, but just wondering for worst-case scenario
