Answer This Question

A:  Yes you will just have to make 2 cuts

by|Mar 31, 2020

    A:  You can cut them cleanly with a circular saw. I recommend clamping or nailing a guide on the side of the post to minimize movement of the saw, if you're going to trim them after setting them in the ground.

      A:  Pressure Treated material can be cut and bored. Make sure you use End Cut Solution on all cuts & bore holes or you will void your warranty. Good luck with your project.

        A:  Yes. If you have a 10” or 12” miter saw you can saw through your 4 x 4’s and create 10” lengths. A stiff blade on a sawsall can also be used.

        A:  Yes. I would recommend a table saw or cross cut saw with the ability to cut 4 x 4 posts. you should make sure you are using a high quality cross cut blade such as a Diablo blade.

                    by|May 8, 2019

                      A:  It depends on the batch. Most of the posts I have got from HD are pretty dry and can be painted. However, I have noticed a few post that were "wet" and I would wait to paint those. My advice is to look at several posts and notice any that are heavier than the others. Those are the ones to stay away from.

                                    A:  In better terms, you are taking the chance of chemicals to be released into your vegetation. No matter how small the "detection is", it is never a good idea to take that chance. I'd recommend cedar beds or concrete beds.

                                      A:  There is no true purpose for a "garden bed" other than aesthetic purposes or to keep varmints out (although they will always find a way)

                                          A:  Short answer: Yes, it is safe for raised beds and such in gardens. Since 2003 the EPA has mandated use of Copper or Chromium in place of the former active chemical, Arsenic (CCA). Plants can absorb these newer preservatives but tests have shown that the amount of preservative leached from the newer PT wood products is so low that it is virtually undetectable. According to the EPA, studies show that the application of a penetrating oil finish can reduce or eliminate exposure to CCA in older decks and to the preservatives used in newer decks. Additionally, I advise using a dust mask when using a saw with PT wood. Clean up scraps and sawdust. Do not burn the wood, of course.

                                                  A:  Hemlock-fir. However, Hemlock and Fir are two distinctly different species. Hemlock has real tendancy to twist and warp as it seasons so it must be securely fastened in place as soon as possible. Assume Hemlock, and hope for the best.
