really beautiful john, you did a great job as you always do, a very nice way to enter your space, to me its like the front door to your home, it starts in peoples minds, what they will be entering, rarely do you see a beautiful door or entrance and walk into a salvage yard, and the same in reverse, so i am quite confidant that if i were to walk through your new entrance, i would not be disappointing in what lay before me….keep on with the wonderful work…grizz

What a nice approach ! Very welcoming ! One question. What kind of finishing did you apply to prevent drainage from the flower boxes staining the cedar below them ?

Thanks everyone for the nice comments . Lee i drilled 3/8” holes in the bottom of the planters . I kept the holes about 3 ” from the wall . I am going to stain everything once the cedar is completely dry .

Extreme entrance for extremely big birds? ;) I didn’t know about white cedar before, does it have the same smell and pest repellant properties as the red one?

Well done. This is very attractive and is no doubt a conversation piece. I bet that you receive a lot of compliments on it.
