Living in Houston, it’s hard to find reclaimed wood. I was able to find a CL score where the guy was selling reclaimed cedar. To be honest, it looks like an old pergola, and I think it’s cedar… I know it’s not oak or pine which is what we predominantly have down here. He said it was Oregon cedar and that he got it from his father-in-law. The good news is that it was stored off the ground.
So any thoughts? Paid $180 for the whole lot. As you can tell, there’s some thick stock in there.
Also, any tips for working with reclaimed wood? I know it’s not painted, so no lead to worry about, but since it’s been outside, wondering if there are any bug issues to worry about?
