blog post link to that table here
we started the process with a pile of kiln dried, reclaimed hemlock timbers from our friend jef harris at vintage log and lumber in alderson, west virginia. we've been buying timbers and planks from jef for, i don't know, 6 or 7 years now? he usually has what we need at a fair price, kiln dried and hardware free. we've bought mostly chestnut, but also some reclaimed oak and miscellaneous other stuff, like this hemlock.
we emailed jef our cad drawing and cut list, and he got the wood together and sent it on a truck, right to our door.
