refurbishing of a shelf in my garden

My pergola with the original shelves is 20 years old now. It is built of redwood from America. That was marketed to stay in good shape for a lifetime. Well, it only lasted 20 years because of my humid climate. Many of the posts were outright rotten. Alex helped me to repair the major part today. As one can see it was quite a task. I used Siberian larch for a change, which is very expensive, but should really last for a lifetime in my climate.

Thank you very much Alex for you great help!

Afterwards we went to Alex' place to meet David there. See at Alex' place
