a question about deck wood quality i guess i've been working on a deck for a while and i'm finally getting toward the end. part of what i did was make a raised section that is like an outdoor sectional couch or banquette(sp?). it seemed smart since as i lay down decking i end up with furniture too. so i'm wondering if i should try to get a better grade of decking for the furniture part. i'm just using the standard grade for the walk around part, but i wondering if maybe a better grade, or even that synthetic type wood would be better for the seating. i'm thinking less chance of splinters. i've been holding off on the bench part till i decide. using the standard grade would let me finish faster just because of cost, but i been working on it for a while so i can wait if y'all think it might be worth buying better wood for the seats. thanks for any help.
