This is my latest score. I was told that this is “nothing” compared to what else they have. Of course some of the pieces are really thin… but who cares! It’s free wood.
The top boards were 2×8 and the bottoms are 3×6. I was told they are poplar. And that there is a truck load more. They aren’t very long. Can’t remember. But that doesn’t matter to me.
Some of this is treated lumber. Not sure what kind. I though they said it was yellow pine. But I wouldn’t know. It was like $3-4 a bd ft is what I think they told me. Was used for some deck project or pergola. I keep meaning to ask the actually people that bought it. These are the cutoffs and left overs. They passed the on to their brother and then to me.
Lots of pine in here.
And check this out… a building to store all the wood I want. I was told I could get 4-5 more truck loads if I want. The building is a perk from work. It’s huge. Like 2 1/2 car garage or something. Lots of room.
Any warnings or tips on dealing with that treated lumber??? Anything I should know? I was told not to burn it. LOL… AS IF I WOULD EVER DO THAT!!! And told to make sure I wear my mask when cutting it (which I already do anyways). But a repeat of the do’s and don’ts is always helpful.
