My guess if they are fence pickets is western red cedar.

Kinda straight grained for cedar, perhaps lauan?

I think you nailed it, splintergroup! After being able to search for lauan (which I never would’ve suspected because I only knew about it in plywood form), I found these 4 7/8” wide boards sold for use as door jambs (approximately double the width, which I can split in half). They look VERY similar, are a common building material (as suspected), and, even better, are still pretty dang cheap when bought new instead of at the ReStore. Thank you guys so much, I knew I could count on an answer on the forum. :)

A Menard's link if you’re curious to compare. Thanks again!

Have your say...
