Looking for a small amount of locust lumber for a decorative grape arbor. (4) 4×4. some 2×6 and some 1x. Rough is fine. Anyone know of an outfit in NH/VT area that has some?

A Black Locust Connection
Great source – on the Mass/VT border
I have used them several times for decking and a high drive barn repair project. Those are black locust plates under Tamarack planking. The owner requested I layer water and ice shield on top.

This ice and water isn’t a bad idea. I still find tar paper used this way from the late 1800’s on porch frames and the joists are still perfect. And I am excited for a new locust source!May 18, 2016 at 8:54 am #88884Michael LowParticipant
No it was not a bad idea, we also laid down some nylon rope to keep the planking up from the joists.
You can tell the owner of A Black Locust Connection that I referred you all.
