I got this whole load of live edge pine from this guy in Homer, he was moving back down to Oregon, and needed to get rid of it, so I gave him a 100 bucks for the whole bunch and he drove it up here and delivered here. His parents live right up the road so it was no inconvenience, but I got an excellent score this wood is quite nice looking. it had been seasoning for two years. I wish I had more pictures of the process, but I basically just used 2×4’s for the cross beams and slats. I also used 4×4’s for the post I mortised out the top and cut a square on the live edge pieces and just slide them on the top and bottom cross beams and mortised the lower beams into the 4×4’s and put in lag bolts with glue turn out really sturdy ! I now have a butt load of wood! and no more room for the jeep in the Garage LOL.
