Wooden planter
« on: June 14, 2016, 08:47:13 PM »
Just making the wife happy but, of course, she asked for more.  Nothing special about this, no joinery to speak of except some rabbets using the almost-new-to-me 8"x66" jointer.

Oh, and I milled that oak myself  ;D

I used Thompson water seal, two coats and since it is white oak, I hope it will hold few years.
I also set boards rabbets to drain out.

I found some good stuff the other day, CopperCoat, it is basically a painted on green treat.  I was using some because I was putting in some post around my wifes Hobby garden to keep bunnies out, apparently you can put this stuff on untreated wood and it is good for ground contact.

The active ingredient is copper napthenate. The solvent based formulations work better but stink for quite a while. The stuff works. I think the original one was called cuprinol. Old timers like me know it by that name.

Very familiar with Cuprinol from years ago as well as Pentachloraphenol . Both worked well and are a thing of the distant past here in California. Rob

This is a can I had left over after building a cypress deck on the back of our house in 1994 when we built it.  The deck boards lasted about five years.  The original "old style" pressure treated joists are still there.  I do not think the Cuperinol would be a long term solution for surface treating wood that is intended to go into the ground around here. 

The planters look really good.  Some of my students made some that were similar for a couple of our teachers last year. The one in the background near the lathe is complete.

My understanding is;  Thompsons water seal is basically paraffin dissolved in Thinner.  After application, the thinner evaporates leaving a coating of paraffin.

A side note, in my old country people would dip fence posts in used car oil, it worked reasonably well.

Try that in CA  ;D ;D ;D

Yes, I had never heard of it either, til I had to do some internet scouting cause I could not get ground rated Pressure treated.  SO i got regular GT, and will be hoping for the best.  By the way I am planting these posts in SOLID CLAY, so I put an a few (ok, maybe 4) coat of the stuff, and extra on all end grains
