I have just about worked my way thru my honeylocust logs and am about to begin milling my black locust logs. However, the internet is not giving me the information I desire. Some of my questions are, what thicknesses should I mill black locust? Because it dries so hard is it time saving to (this may show how much of a novis I am at milling) plane the boards once off the mill to save blades later? Should I only mill them to 4×4’s and sell them as posts?
Ideally I would mill them to become deck boards. Which brings along a plethora of new questions. Will a 1 inch board work as decking and would a 5/4 milled board give me a 1” deck board.
Well, I recon I have will just end my questions there. I have tried to find as much info as possible on the net but havn’t been satisfied yet with the amount of info I found. So I have once again turned to this community to help me thru my troubles.
