I have eight pieces of timber each measuring 2inches x 11 inches x 42 inches . Each piece weighs about 30 kg . I think the wood is hardwood called resak and the wood is really hard.

Last time I had 16 pieces and I used 5 pieces for flower pot stand . Another 3 pieces became my bench top. I just don’t know what I could use the rest of the wood.

in this country DIY is not popular and few people like to recycle wood. I do not have a table saw or a band saw to rip them to more practical dimension . If I use my skilsaw ito rip I might burn the blade.

What you think I should do with the wood ? Cannot turn them into firewood as nobody uses wood for cooking !

I’d buy some tools or sell the wood.

Handsaw or skilsaw. Planes to clean it up.

Just ship them to me and I’ll dispose of it for you. ;-)
