Transformation of the Week by:
kind of a tangental thread BUT , I was wondering if any of you chaps have experienced much widthwise shrinking with IPE? I want to lay the boards diagonally on a 45 and want to dress up the ends with a border board.
I have experienced very obvious width wise shrinkage on Select DecK press treated SYP and it showed up at the mitred ends. Laid diagonally w/ the ends cut on a chalk line only to have everything shrink creating a sawtooth zigzag line instead of the the strait cut line..I recut that line a year later, eased the edges AGAIN and then bordered it .ANd it stayed good
I am hoping IPE is dry enuf that this won't occur . SHould I biscuit and glu each 45'd edge into the preguved edge of the border board? Thanks for any input
Stunning details. I especially like the double column approach.
Really stands out. Could you provide a cross sectional elevation showing the under deck drainage/ceiling/joists/crown mldng relationship? I imagine those details required enormous exactitude to execute!
