I am doing a small project on my boat, in an exposed area. Teakwood is the first choice but when I costed it out, I was flabbergasted. What other wood would work, having an adequate rot resistance and be light enough that I could stain to match the teakwood? I think oak might be good?
Also, I have a bunch of black locust logs I have been making into posts and rails. That wood is very rot resistance. I am cutting up a piece and making into boards as possibility for my project. This wood was cut and split 2 years ago. How will I know if it is seasoned enough to use on a project?
