So I was going to use white cedar and walnut for my new stripped deck, but apparently the white cedar is difficult for me to get conveniently (and cheaply) so now I have to come up with alternatives.
I'm considering WRC instead of the white cedar, or cypress (not sure how light it is in color) or possibly basswood.
Anyone have any good success with a particular light wood? My key concernis weight though workability and price willcome into play as well. Suggestions for a lighter weight alternative for my dark wood are more than welcome as well. I like walnut but I'm not tied to it.
