european redwood ,from scandinavia- pinus sylvestris, I think as opposed to
whitewood or yellow pine. Importers in north uk dont seem to deal in any
exotics . All pine furniture seems to be made of it nowadays.
I usually reckon to pay 105 pounds ex VAT per 100 metres of 50 x 75 mm
redwood (ie 3" x 2") sorted 5ths (ie 1.05 per metre) from Travis Perkins. I
reckon there's about 280 metres of that stuff in a cubic metre, which would
be about 300 quid at TP prices.
Seems pretty cheap if it's straight and not too badly knotted.
Of course, you'd probably get selected walnut for that price in the US! :))
