Carpenters Tip: Wood selection
When building a gazebo you need to choose a wood that stands up to the rigors of the weather. A rot resistant, soft wood would be the best choice. Three most commonly used woods are cedar, redwood or treated pine. Depending on where you live, one of these should be widely available.

Try to avoid inhaling sawdust from treated wood. When you are sawing treated wood, always wear a dust mask. Try to perform all cutting outside to keep the airborne sawdust form entering the home.
