The first step is the choice of wood. Something essential to preserve its original beauty is to take a piece of wood which has been subjected to treatments with the primers as well as protect it from the elements.

Simply a tilt able to your goal. To avoid the boat of your staves because of excessive loads or sudden changes in temperature, fixed every 80 cm of the support strips for your floor.
