A big stack of black (locust). Finally picked up my order of 360 board feet of black locust. I had two 12’ - 14’ log sections boarded up and kiln dried a few months ago. Still heavy at below 10% though! This stuff is bomb proof. This will become exterior insulated barn doors, exterior stairs, and other asst. ext. application trims, etc. #naturespressuretreated #blacklocust #blacklocustlumber

I have recovered from the...incident...and ready to glue on the fretboard. I was planning on using a torrefied flame-maple fb, but I picked up a torrefied black locust board and am thinking I’ll go with it. It is apparently one of the hardest woods native to North America—harder than maple. Plus, the darker contrast against the walnut/maple neck looks nice. I’m thinking I’ll stick with torrefied flame maple for the headstock veneer. #diyguitar #firstbuild #learningpit #blacklocust #blacklocustlumber #torrefiedmaple

One Of The Most Venerable, Age Old Wood Species: •BLACK LOCUST, aka •ROBINIA •ACACIA It Is Revered And Loved For Many Reasons, Including The Incredible “White Cloud, Cascading Flowers”, and Intensely Sweet, Fragrant Flower Blossoms Coming In May. The Best HONEY, in the World. BL, is a nitrogen fixer for poor soil and it is often planted to enrich the soil on disturbed sites. It was a maritime favorite for building masts of the wooden ships of old, and a tool hobbyist’s love for wooden handles. #blacklocustlumber #robinia #acacia #robiniapseudoacacia #nitrogenfixer #rotresistant #beesloveit #nochemicals #nooils #pioneeringspecies #treelover #greenarchitecture #woodisgood #honey #longevity #climatesolutions #woodendeck #brisesoleil #handrail #lamination #siding #pedestrianbridge #proflowpavers #woodpavers #sitefurnishings #permeablepavements #architecturedaily

Why Black Locust Pavers vs. Concrete Or Stone Pavers? This picture is a classic and common picture of concrete spalling. It is caused by freezing and thawing temperatures as well as deicing chemicals on sidewalks and driveways. Did you know that Black Locust has a PSI of over 10,000 vs. Concrete at around 2500 PSI? • • • #blacklocustlumber #acacia #robinia #robiniapseudoacacia #proflowpavers #permeable #woodenpavements #designinnovation #nochemicals #nooils #wood #pavers #heatisland #carbonneutral #greenbuilding #maintenancefree #sustainable #stormwater #zerowaste #innovatenotimitate #climatesolutions
