F-work related, but a gloat nonetheless.

I'm re-decking my deck this year. Last night I picked up the lumber. I found a local sawyer who agreed to get me 350bf of Black Locust 1"x4" of various lengths. I told him 6'-8' was fine as I'm doing a herringbone design.

I ended up with almost 400 bf for $400. That strikes me as a good price. I'm not sure I could get treated for that price.

Now to wait for a run of nice days to get it done.

No pic, it didn't happen, so here's the pic:

WOW :eek:! That deck will outlast everyone's house in the neighborhood! Don't know how black locust boards do with twisting and such, but I'd be careful about that happening before you get 'em screwed down.

I need to re-stack them and put the big ones on the bottom. But this is the way they came out of the truck.

I hope you have 12x12 posts to hold that stuff up! :) Heavy stuff that locust. Great for firewood, too...
