What did you do with the oak sleepers? Just bought some and want ideas


Had garden in 3 different levels so did a lot of digging and level everything in same level. Use sleepers for retaining wall and put lots of screws to hold everything together. Had to pre-drill every screw so the bits were really handy. Yeah the box is pain in the butt to open or close

Hard to open definitely

OK, but I don't think you can sharpen this sort of wood drill. Ordinary wood drills you can easily shapen
Just snapped a couple of mine an hour ago. Ordered this set - thanks Op

You can sharpen them, I sharpen mine all the time. There are videos on Youtube on how to do it.

Well good luck! Yes there are videos how to do it on Youtube by eye! (mainly) My eyesight isn't good enough and you seem to require exposing a large amoint of the grinding wheel. It's all too easy to gring a lump out of yout finger! Fortunately, I've got a small drill sharpening machine which quickly sharpens standard twist drills but not these bits,

These are good for drilling plastic. I've found hss bits can cause splitting.

LOoks good, if your filling that with soil make sure you paint the inside of the sleepers with tar paint or the sleepers will rot, I learnt the hard way

Yup, I don't know how we managed before Youtube :D. I don't use a grinder, I sharpen them with a file and a diamond coated file. Usually if you're just cutting wood they only require a very like touch up every now and again.

Twist drills are fine, but brad point drills are useful as they make a nice clean hole and the tip doesn't wander when drilling on an angle. For pre- drilling softwood etc then twist drills are fine, but for any fine joinery work it's worth having some of these to hand.

Thanks for the info. Didn't want to put any harsh paint on them so kept it simple. I used decking oil as first coat and after wax to make them water resistant. Hope they'll last for some time.

Hope your garden didn't end worse than it was before. What was your idea?

Oh; it's been transformed from what it was before (concrete jungle to fresh grass and raised sleepers round the side and back). Just that the quality of the work, although good, isn't as immaculate as what you show in the picture. There are small gaps between the sleepers and the colours of the sleepers also don't match as much. But overall we are pleased.
Glad to hear that you are pleased. You can put a coat of oil (preferable Danish) which brings the oak colour to life. With those gaps between sleepers is always good to have them if you don't have proper drainage. They'll leave the water, which will get stuck behind them, go away. Only problem what I have with my sleepers was that they were cut inaccurate. Picked up company with good reviews but they let me down with that. Sometimes there were differences from one side to the other about an inch. Had to pull out my hand planner and put my back in to it. But that is just me to do extra mile for better finish. Good luck with other projects and enjoy your new garden ;-)
