Boxing in Pressure treated post with Cedar facing


Hey,

I am working on a decking project. I was hoping to get some help with covering up the PT 6x6 post with cedar.
What is the best way to get this to look seamless......like an actual cedar post and not like it is covered with 4 pieces of facing?

Thanks
Jason.

Use 1 X 10 cedar and backcut (mitre cut) the ripped lengths. Put the four sides over the post and caulk any open cracks that may turn up using cedar caulk.

Cut the edges at a 45 degree angle and glue and nail the corners very carefully. Make sure they line up at the edge. Pick out the straightest and flattest boards to cut. This will make the fabrication part easier.
