I've got a request from the wife for a pegola project and called my
local lumber yard, Johnson Lumber in Edgewater, MD. $2.88 LF for a
clear 2x4 and $4.33 LF for 2x6. 8ft 4x4 clear posts we $34 each.
I was wondering if these are reasonable prices and what my alternatives
were as far as retailers...or species (of wood, not retailers:)!
No cedar of any kind in the Butler (Rt23) Lowes, nor the BORG next doors.
I want to make a very simple garden bench from cedar from a magazine
But I can't find cedar around NJ zip 07410 <crying>
Call Frank Martin at Agincourt, 908 874-8234. He's in Hillsborough NJ, about
an hour's drive for you. Last time I was there, he had several woods suitable
for outdoor projects, including cedars and cypress.
