Hi Jason, Thanks for the Bunnings suggestion. Yes we use the local Bunnings quite a lot for just about everything. In fact will be buying a Camo hidden fastener kit for the new decking. Sadly in regards to best weather treatment for real WA Jarrah the local guys cant help. with this issue so I am hoping to garner some comment maybe from WA bulders who are familiar with WA Jarrah. Cheers.
Keep up the great discussion site.
You can look at Gumtree, Ebay and Facebook Marketplace and search as close or as far as you wish from your location.

There's some helpful pointers about obtaining pallets and recycling them. @ProjectPete and @Yorky88 might also want to share some tips as they have loads of experience with pallet projects and live nearby.
I have been looking through all the great ideas on pallet projects but couldn't find any bbq trolleys to sit my new bbq on, I was hoping to make something with double doors. Has any one done this?

It's great to have you join us and fantastic to see you jump straight into the discussion. I haven't personally created a BBQ trolley out of timber before but I look forward to hearing what our helpful member's ideas are. Let me mention some knowledgable members @Poppop, @r23on, @woodenwookie and @LePallet to see if they would like to share their thoughts.
