Very nice.
Thanks Caleb.... in the past we've used clear cedar battens, nice and light and finishes up almost teak colour with the right finish.. but it's become hard to find. In this case I cheaped out and used regular fir/hem and played around with stain to get the colour right. It's not a high visibility area and it's stood up fine, and looks OK I think.
