Helped dismantle an old shed and came home with lots of rough cut pine. Most is actual size: real 2×4’s, real 1×8’s. Stored it on a trailer under a tarp for a week until I could measure and see what I actually had; however, the top boards turned green. I assume decades of spores and other mophous got some moisture and grew. I was hoping to leave the rough cut texture for my projects, but these boards are not healthy as is. I can plane them, and lose the rough texture. Wash them I will probably get some warp.
Is there a way to clean old lumber?
