Has anyone used this mod wood in place of conventional timber and what are your thoughts / experience?
filling the gaps between the boards wont allow for expansion unless its a flexible fillerits wood and will forever expand / contract dependent on the weather / humidity.One of the main reasons guitars have truss rods in them is to enable adjustment of the wooden neck to cater for both string tension and climate
This is a question l have,
I aint building a boat...i need the water to disperse and i am using a composite wood to stop it rotting and mould forming.
I was talking to bloodog pauly not you.
The company i work for sell's pine decking, the grade of decking makes a big difference eg- merch will bend and buckle more than premium or clear grade pine. The decking will expand and shrink with the weather eg- the decking will swell when wet and then return to original size when dry again, we have to explain to our customers that the decking has just been treated and it will shrink, there is a huge demand for decking here in NZ at the moment as soon as it is ready it goes straight out the door, I personally would not use plastic just because it is artificial and I prefer working with timber
