Someone asked the question if I was going to treat the wood that I used on the posts.

That was something that I forgot, and i was planning to write about when I made the posts and enches.

When I was at the big orange home supply center I saw some new treated wood. It’s by Thompson’s, its called Thompsonized wood

The wood was not the normal green treated wood. It’s more of a natural color wood treatment.

This post is treated wood.

The price is about the same as the green treated wood. In fact when i went into the store to buy it I found that the green pressure treated wood was in the same compartment as the thompsonized wood.

According to the advertisement. Their Southern Pine treated wood is available at Home Depot east of the Rockies, the redwood treated wood is available west of the rockies, and the Jackpine treated wood is available in Canada.

I also found on the web this site. Sounds great. They say its the future of treated wood. Timbersil

The brochure on the Tompson’s product does state termites and wood rot preventative.

If you were referring to the glass product, I didn’t see anything like that on their web site. I’m going to try and find some to see what it is. It would sure be great for outdoor furniture.
