Right angle


I used to know this stuff,but its been so long....lol

I am moving a fence and want it at a right angle to what it is now. Is a right angle triangle with 3 ft on one side, 4 ft on the right angle side equal to 5 on the 3rd side?.......Like I said, its been a while, but thats the way I seem to remember it......

YES!!!  The hypoteneuse is 5'. That makes the true 90 degree angle between the 3' and 4' sides; the 3' - 5' angle is 30 deg., and the 4' - 5' angle is 60 deg.

we used plastic triangles in the Drafting profession and we always called those 30/60s and the other one a 45 which had 2 equal sides forming the 90

However, I still don't believe that equation that pie are square (TT r 2) because pie are round and cornbread are square - - - at least down here they are

A-ha!! A new guy to poke at; hope you have a thick hide. Come on in and hang out a while. To answer your question, in my experience, and in a word, no. Once it's gone grey, it will never look like new wood again. You can pressure wash it, maybe bleach it, but it will still be grey to some extent. I even tried sanding a section of my deck, and it was still a light grey. So, I just got the color fairly even, and sealed it with Thompson's; had a light section on the side of the house where I had sanded that small area, but the rest of it looked fairly decent,even if it was still more grey than redwood. There are semi-transparent stains that will give some color, or totally opaque stains that are almost like paint but let the wood grain show through.

Tell us some about yourself, a short bio, if you will. Me, I'm an old, worn out killywiggle chaser, clumbsum, wire bender, wrench twister, hammer swinger - retired Lineman, Electrician, Millwright. And a lifetime car nut of sorts. I'm always around here, but often don't say much.

Welcome....I have a deck doing much the same thing. It was built with pressure treated wood, but the quality of that sucks these days. I have pressure washed it a couple of times, but is slightly grey still....Gonna stain it if I can ever get off my lazy arse.

 OH BOY, someone new to pick on!!!!!!

When wood turns gray - it's always gray (unless you remove a quarter inch or so of the surface).

With our open deck, pressure treated, I waited until the wood dried from being treated --- two or three years. It turned a fugly gray.  I tried solid pigment Cabot Stain first and that did NOT hold up beyond a year for an expensive product. I then used a solid pigment Behr stain from Home Depot and after 2-3 years, still looks good (except for the dirt that needs to be power washed off one of these days when I can overcome the arse based lead pants).

First of all Welcome to the Honey'do Asylum - - - now, back to the wood. Down here in Tejas folks pay good money for that old barn wood that has turned gray and has been etched by time showing the grain like a 3D topo map.

Again let me say "Howdy"

That depend on whether that cornbread is going into a glass of milk,, the pie don't matter none

     EC        Welcome to the BS place,, mostly just a place for ole farts to pass the day,,

As for the wood turning gray,, up here in the North West country (Oregon) seems most everything is left to do its natural thing (turn gray) Rumble mentioned using that corbet stain,, that stuff always fades out and looks like crap..   sometime the clear sealer helps the wood maintain its natural color,, but I think it eventually does its thing ( turn Gray,,, )  just like people,,  AGAIN WELCOME
