Outdoor deck

Hi all

 

Just sharing our latest project, with timber, plants, firepit, decking oil, paint and lights purchased from Bunnings Lawnton. We made a tabletop for the firepit with leftover decking timber, so it can be used all year round 😊

Re: Outdoor deck

Very nice indeed!
I am intrigued with the reflective surface, how was that achieved?

Re: Outdoor deck

The deck is just wet @Bundaboy.

 

You can see it's been raining because water is dripping down the sides of the platform. 

 

There are "wet-look" decking oils available though, eg https://www.bunnings.com.au/feast-watson-4l-wet-look-decking-oil_p1520426

Re: Outdoor deck

K, seen many, many wet decks without that kind of reflection, but it is what it is I spose. Cheers.

Re: Outdoor deck

Yes I had thought of that but I couldn't convince myself water alone would make wood that reflective (unless pooled) - so maybe it's a combination of the water and the finish.

 

No I can't see the water dripping down the sides, but my eyes have never been great and now they are nearly 66 years old.

 

Cheers.
