Mini Post: Deck Rebuild –

By Wayne Halm –

More rain before daybreak, but the Sun came up in clear skies.

While I waited for things to dry out, a trip to Home Depot seemed like a good idea. I had a new idea for the rail and wanted to check it out.  The idea didn’t pan out but I bought another gallon of stain.

The first coat, on bare wood, really soaks up a lot of stain.


By early afternoon the Sun had dried the wood so I could continue. I completed the first coat of stain on the planks.

As expected the first coat looked kind of rough – but the wood was sealed from the weather.


Somehow this day didn’t seem terribly productive to me. I think the wood looks worse after the first coat than before.  But I knew that, I had done this part before, and tomorrow I will change that.  Check back and find out how.

Then — Come play golf with me.
