Grrrrr lost my post.  Anyway I said doghouse I feel your pain.  I cried once when I had to paint the staircase ballistrade at my previous home..  Yours does look great though so well worth the effort

Try again!

I made this  pergola thirty years ago after building our our koi pool.

Over time, like us, it deteriorated and was struggling to support the weight of the wisteria. So getting on for ten years ago I rebuilt it but managed to save the decorative panels. Then a couple of years ago they were looking a bit tatty, so I re-made them.

Unfortunately the plywood I used turned out to be rubbish, so despite preparing them properly, they started to de-laminate, early this year with the effects of temperature changes and  constantly being in a damp environment.

So overa the last couple of  days I've re-made them again! With hopefully better quality plywood.
