Oxalic acid really brought the colour out in it! Almost instantly, too.

I used my turbo nozzle on the blaster and it didn't seem to touch the best pieces of wood at all, whereas the decayed pieces and partially decayed pieces just got machined away to where the hard timber started again. Impressive. Best water blasting purchase ever :-D

Crappy quality photo, because original was 8.5 meg and twatter API rejected it:

Hey Fred,

have you built the deck yet? :)
(just out of curiosity, not meaning to be pressing :D)

No I've not! Not done anything except pay down the mortgage at a high rate (90+% repayment, < 10% interest).

Hoping to get up there at some point mid year and finish off the driveway and do something with the dangerous tree.

Still occasionally dreaming about the design of said deck/building/carport/path to it.

Re prior post, lots more pics available. I should try to put one in here now... one second...
