We're almost to the deck stripping stage of our second WD, both from plans. On the first we ripped material we found locally for the deck, Mahogany, Cedar and White Oak. I'm a little disappointedin the cedar available in my area, it's hard to find anything with some red in it - all brown w/ some off white mixed in. I haven't found a source for Western Red Cedar here. (Jacksonville, Fl.)
I'l be traveling to Richmond for a job shortly and am thinking it may be worth putting the build on hold and picking up some Western Red while I'm up there. Does anybody here have any info about what's availabl/where?
Also- There is some Spanish Cedar here but I have heard negative comments about the oil content and have reservations about using it. Anyone with experience using it for strips?
Thanks for your time, Bob.
