comment Do I really need to wait a month before applying primer to plaster?
30 days? Is it possible that they're talking about the cure time for "real" plaster?

comment How should I approach red oak crown molding?
A good lumber yard will even match a pattern, if you have one you like.

comment Setting posts for a sturdy garden fence
Could it be that the quikrete calculator is designed to sell quikrete? For a cedar post I'm leaning towards DA01's suggestion of crushed rock.

How old is the pool? How big are the affected areas?

@DA01 - Yeah, it probably can't hurt to go with the heavier post for $4.00

@DA01 - I'll be using an 8 ft. post set into the ground 2 ft. with some quikrete for good measure. My confusion is that I'm seeing several kinds of posts; "regular" - 16 gauge and "corner" - both 15 and 13 gauge.

I've used these and successfully released the mouse. They'll come off with some vegetable oil and patience.
