Any wood craftsman types around?
Essentially, baby wrecker is due at any minute so my gym time is going to be limited for a good while and I want to build a free-standing fairly basic apex type structure in the garden as a little shelter. I want a beam along the centre for hanging rings from and pull ups. My BiL isn't a Carpenter but is a good DIYer although he does like to talk things up (no idea why). So, do I need to buy pressure treated wood? Can I buy softwood and treat it with some preservative? We'll only be here a year, so as long as it still looks OK when we need to sell then I can live with it, and it need to be able to take a 90kg bloke hanging from it.
If I do need it, how much more expensive is pressure treated wood? Best to buy from a timber merchant or DIY place?
Saw(!) this place and I'd like them to get my money but only if I need what they sell;
Thanks in advance for any advice.
