    Oops I for got to complete the typing for drywall screws.

  16. googlesbitch says:

    Don’t use dry screws they will not last more than a few years. Use deck screws for hot dipped galvanize nails. Both will outlast the wood. Even electro galvanize doesn’t last as long and the difference in cost is very little.(they are designed for non moisture contact)

    I tiake plastic and wrap my lumber, no chemical problems then, plastic lasts about 2 years, then replace. I like the 2 by 12′ but our problem locally is 8 cents a gallon for city water so we collect rain water, tanks hold 1,100 gallons and fills with one inch of rain. That will water the garden for more 25 days.

    You guys are friendly, which helps make this a good video.
    Treated lumber has raised some questions, myself included. There is something called “TimberSIL”, a person may want to look into. Treated lumber using sand, they call it being glass-impregnated or the like. Availability a problem?

    Now those gloves, “come-on-man..

    Oh, “linseed oil”, I’m considering, “boiled linseed oil” not the same as plain-ole linseed oil. “boiled linseed” have driers, ewe.. “poison” added. But, be yourself..

    not everyone can afford cedar, and it is not as readily available as pine. my beds have lasted years. and the brackets are galvanized. thx, eric.

  20. erochow says:

    Great video! I wanted you both to know that you were a great inspiration to me in deciding to build a raised garden bed with my twin brother!…thanks for that inspiration! -George from beautiful downtown Rye, New York! 🙂

  22. erochow says:

    true, drywall screws do rust. good point on using wood screws. thx, eric.

  23. jjpiper says:

    I liked the video. You guys and the dogs were great. The information was very useful. However I do have problem with one thing. Drywall screws are not “used for everything”. They are used for drywall. They rust quickly and the heads break off easily when used outdoors or on wood. Use wood screws or exterior deck screws on wood. Thanks.
