Great podcast on porch posts — there’s nothing I’d rather think about…

FRP is a product I use at work for the inside walls of restaurant bars. It comes in 4×8 sheets, is about 1/8″ thick and is textured. It smells like flowers when you cut it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow – Flowers? Paul, did your project come out smelling like roses?
