    Hi Everyone, Would appreciate your advice on my situation. My home doesn't have a basement or garage but it does have a large backyard with two sheds. One shed is about 14x8 with an 8ft ceiling, the other is slightly smaller. The larger shed is most likely not large enough for any serious...

    Hello Everyone - I'm looking to restore two cast-iron benches. The dimensions of the wood slats are 48" long, 3/4" thick, and 2.25" wide. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on affordable wood to replace what's here - I priced out Teak at my local lumber yard (In NY) and it was...

    Hello all, One of my next projects is going to be an outdoor swing made of old barn beams and lumber. The wood is Red oak. I know it would make more sense to make outdoor furniture out of White oak because of its water resistant features due to its tyloses from the ray parenchyma cells into...

    Hi, I need to urgently build some rather big pheasant cages (aprox 3 m x 2 m x 2 m). They're meant for being used outdoors directly with no protecting roof above or so.

    Hi all! New guy here. I’ve undertaken a fairly (for me, anyway!) ambitious project of building a 6’ octagon which houses a center Weber Grill for on-the-fly grilling and imbibing. It’s built 100% out of Cypress which I’ve read to be a great choice for outdoor furniture. I’ve covered it in 5...

    Hi there, I am very new at this and am trying to add a decorative element to my backyard. i have a cinder block wall, and my landscape guy tried attaching douglas fir 1x10x10. With two days of rain, they warped, split, and look awful. I have realized he doesn't know what he is doing and I am...

  10. Wood Finishing
    I finished the underside of my porch roof and a dormer-style entryway with pine planks. I like the look of the raw wood, and I would like to finish it with a product that leaves it looking natural; but new, not weathered. The wood is completely under cover and receives less than an hour late...
