I’m redoing a neighbor’s porch. One detail that I’m always thinking about is the best way to connect the wood porch posts to the wood floor. On my porch, I used a piece of 5/4” Azek with some holes drilled through it, then ran a little Azek shoe molding around the post to cover the joint. Seems OK. But what about a situation where I don’t want the shoe molding?
What would you guys do? Soak end grain in wood preservative, prime and paint, and stick it on the floor?
What about routing out a few little 1/4” wide/deep weep channels into the bottom of the post? Then prime/paint/install.
