Went to the local farm & home store today for some pressure treated lumber. 2 X 12 X 12. Treated lumber was actually cheaper than standard white wood. Don't know that I have ever seen that before.

I took a piece of the cedar back where I bought it, and he ran it through the sander for me. Is that some pretty wood or what?  I think so.The pic does not do it justice. It's a lot more vivid.
