My friend and I have a question for the Lumberjocks community.
He’s buiding an Ipe Pergola. It looks AWESOME!!! He’s using stopped sliding dovetails,
open at the top, for the jointery of the beams. Very nice fitting, he’s doing a great job.
The joints are nice and tight.
We live in a Northern State, and we were wondering about the risk of water seeping into the joints, freezing and causing damage.
So here are the questions:
1: Should we be worried about freezing?
Any info / advice would be appreciated.
