    Pergola Decking Advice Needed

    hey mike. recently done some decking myself. would recommend putting down a water permeable membrane to aid drainage. perhaps some gravel on top for good measure. so in short, i would rip up the plastic sheet.

    I'm sure I'll be ripped a new one in the not too distant future. Water from a duck's back 8) 8) I've given up counting pennies. As conciliation, I tell myself that it would have been more if I got someone in to do it. Banking the "saving" as beer money!

    i now have more experience as a chippy (rudimentary) than making potjie (none!). So I hope that talking about braais include swapping notes on making potjie!!

    I'm not sure what a BBQ is... presume it has to do with frozen burger patties :wink: :wink: There was supposed to be some cover for a braai but as an after thought not really fitting with roof. Next best option is a standalone covered braai area to the side... happy to crowdsource ideas!!

    And that's where I've got to so far. A journey of self discovery :shock: Watch this space for the final product.

    Once the carcass was sound again, it was time to don a new frock.

    Howzit all. New to this community - its like discovering a gold deposit! Anyhow, you all look like a friendly bunch, so I thought I'd share my little pet project. I lie. It's been an absolute [email protected]!! ache. What was supposed to be a simple weekend of redecoration ended up in a complete rebuild...

    Finishing Pine bar top

    new to dyes... and appreciate it comes down to individual taste... but what shade would you recommend to get a natural (slightly aged) pine look? line in the sand then i can go and test from there!

    Finishing Pine bar top

    Phil - reading up on RPC on some of the other threads. Seems quite a difficult customer to work with. What's the best "fools guide to" you can point me to? (assume i know nothing on the topic!)

    Finishing Pine bar top

    cheers both. have used yacht varnish on some outside bits before so may test that out. Re RPC - have seen that recommended on other threads, but never used it before. what sort of prep would i need to get a smooth finish?

    Finishing Pine bar top

    Howzit all. Only discovered this gold mine today - so bare with me if this has been covered previously (I'll gladly accept links to previous posts!) Long story short, I've rebuilt a summer house over the recent past (more past than recent). Final job is to install an L-shaped bar top...
