    thanks DA :D
    the frame is held together by 3 x turbo golds (as per chips advice) on each join and the frame is sat on dekposts with M10 stainless bolts to stop it all moving around. I was planning on a couple of courses to support the middle and vertical due to 2 posts being bollowed in transit. :(

    Should have slightly staggered the screws, so as not to encourage splitting.

    Also look for BSS slabs or BSS Pressed Concrete Slab, same thing just, depends where you are in the UK as to the name.
