I am looking for a source for wood for a project - 6" x 6" that is 18" to 24" in length. It needs to be dry, free of checks, clear of knots, and not the center of the tree. I am looking for wood that will resist rot and the elements as the finished project will be outdoors and in all weather. My thoughts are: Alaskan yellow cedar, western red cedar, mahogany, Spanish cedar. I am finding that it hard to track any of these down at these dimensions.
Please let me know if you have something like this available to sell, or if you know someplace I can source a piece of wood along these lines.
