<Snip> I suggest to IR that he not get any splinters. :)

And with splinters let's leave the wood treatment topic before we get
anything under our nails... I think we've covered the facts, and I do
certainly appreciate that it has stayed to facts so far. This isn't a
rebuke or a reprimand, just a friendly reminder :)

Now to try and remember how the heck that dude lagbolted his 4x4's together
and stay on topic myself... ;) Martin, I think he routed out notches in
the wood itself to fit them together, and then cut pilots at angles from the
mainstem inside out to the outside, which he countersunk the washers and
heads so it fit together nicely and without touching the liner.

As I think about that... Thats a lot of dang work! I guess I forgot that
his brother in law is a carpenter and can do these kinds of cuts in his
sleep. This may be a case of overengineering :)
