This pile of lumber was given to my good friend after painting a house. They apparently are the cutoffs from a deck build some years earlier and sat piled under the deck. He in turn gifted them to me.
38 boards of 4/4×3-1/2×50” S4S
My wood expert friends at work say it’s Honduran Mahogany.
I’ve had it up in the barn loft for ~5 years since and today my A1 helper and I lugged it into the basement to get acclimated. We’re hoping to get started on the chest while she’s on Spring brake. Assuming spring ever comes.
