Thanks Baz, so i may not need to treat them at all? So what wood was my patio bench made from! I treated it ever year,put away in the winter and the seat slats still   rotted at the tenons! What native hard woods?

Hi all I intend to make some Tit  boxes,stop it stop now!  OK seriously i would like to make them from a timber that won't need excessive treatment each year .
I may stain some of them but on the whole I would like to keep them natural looking, my initial thoughts are red cedar?Suggestions welcome,.
Thanks Nigel

Hi all,this is the gate I made some ten years ago with the help & guidance of my neighbour who is a retired joiner. This is the method he was taught when he was an apprentice. All the braces have chamfered top faces to shed water.The top of the gate has a cap,once again to shed water. The gate is made from T&G from Wickes some form of Baltic pine I presume. It's all held together with galvanized screws,it seems to have stood the test of time !
Thread: quality of super market fuel
06/12/2008 09:37:00

Hi the basic reason is the super markets have the fuel they sell blended to retail at the price point they intend to retail it at. Don't fool yourselves in to thinking that they are discounting the fuel because you shop there; their  forecourt's also make profit.

The reason I advise my customers to avoid super market fuel is because of the many contamination issues with the product .I could go on!
