Too bad the shinny tape doesn't come in a tapa version.

That Cornel one up top did say you need to get rid of the bees to get rid of the birds.
Read that one, it had some good stuff.

I would wrap that post in white metal flashing.
Those bees go to the same spot every year, when they get done they
totally mess that wood up.
NOW the birds want the bees and or larvae of the bees.

I had this problem and put metal flashing up and the bees STILL try like heck to
drill into that same spot where I put the flashing.

They will run you ragged.

Yeah I read that about the carpenter bees. I didn't see any holes from bees in the posts. I will be taking the old cedar off soon and can do forensics to look for signs of insects. (This is likely the same woodpecker that pecked the hole in the tiki mask's forehead ...and I know there weren't bug in there.)

Thanks Vamp!

I spent more time on the router this weekend. Looking forward to having these posts completed!


I'm doing three pairs of posts. 3.5 are complete...2.5 to go.

Thanks Hiltiki.

Finished carving all of them:

No, What you did looks great!
Wonder if a clear coat will help keep it looking good.

THAT"S the rub, KEEPING it looking good for years in our climate.
