I plan on making some lawn furniture this spring so it’ll be ready for summer lounging. Got a good deal on some Western Red Cedar.

If I buy some of that from you, is picking allowed?

You can pick through it, Charlie, but you have to restack when you’re done.

I like the built in stair case. I’ll take the middle row.

From the source:

The Cedar Lumber Manufacturing Company’s mill, located just west of the Ballard Bridge, was the largest in Ballard. At the mill, logs were cut into lumber which was then dried for at least nine months before being sold. The stacks of drying lumber were over 50 feet high. In 1958, these stacks caught fire and burned. Ballard residents remembered the huge blaze for many years. (+)

I can’t imagine the amount of pressure the bottom pieces of wood are under. Talk about “pressure treated wood”! The whole thing’s sitting on 3 beams, too—but they’re really big beams.
