We’ve got a some locust here and it’s harvested mostly for split rail fences, burns hot in a wood stove too.
I’ve not seen any furniture built with locust but have seen a lot of hand rails in log homes made with locust.
I’ve got a friend that uses it for hand rails.
We’ve got a cedar split rail fence around our home instead of the locust, was about 1/2 the price. Once either age here and turn grey I can’t tell the difference unless I get up close to it.
