The board shown in the first picture is 13 inches wide and 2 inches thick! These were the rafters that spanned an 1880’s building. They were originally 2.5 inches thick and 23 feet long.

Is there enough left to do another set of stairs roughly 4’ wide? I’m in the Austin area and the previous did my stairs with pallet wood. I was wanting to keep the rustic theme but do an upgrade.

Yes, there is definitely enough to do another set of stairs. If you send a phone number I will call you. Hoping you might have something to trade as I paid quite a bit for this wood $25 a board foot and since you used pallet wood before, you may not want to incur that type cost. It is beautiful rare stuff in this age, width and thickness

You had emailed “Yea I won’t be able to swing $25 a BF. I was expected around $8. Great looking stuff for sure, but I’ll probably just get some local lolbolly pine since I’m in Bastrop.”
I understand your price range, but keep in mind that someone told me the wood at Home Depot now is priced around $8 a board foot for boards that are better than just building studs or fence posts…
