Got some Tallowwood (Australian hardwood) and made my samson posts.
Now what to do, the old ones were painted above the deck
and stained below the deck
. I am think of painting above and below deck as there in no other surfaces stained below deck.
When installing them should I leave one side below the deck unpainted? This one side I will be using an appoxy glue and bolts to attach them to the bulkhead.
Which is better to leave it unpainted or to paint
with a primer and 2 pack paint
