    check with amihan lumber, they have a bandsaw and planer and will custom mill.

    i also know a timber buyer in amlan who might help you.

    consider coconut slabs if you're going to do raised beds. there's a place in my neighborhood that has slabs dumped on the roadside, i don't know what they're doing with them but there's way too many for one house so i assume they're reselling.

    any lumber you buy is probably going to be green and lead heavy. my choice for long term raised beds would be hollow block.

    Hi ya, a very simple preservative for timber here in the Phil's is 10% diesel and 90% waste oil, a couple of coats will keep the boko at bay for few years. try and air dry the timber for a while if you can.

    Even with air drying first, is this healthy - especially if used within a confined space?

    It's probably not very healthy. The hazardous things are chromium, zinc and lead in the oil from engine wear. I wouldn't worry to much about that as the oil/fuel soak into the wood.
    My gemalina ( sp) trusses were treated with oil/diesel 9 years ago. Nothing lives in my attic, not even a spider.

    I would not worry about what soaked into the wood (except if the skin comes into direct contact) but I would worry about any gases which come from it - this, of course, is more likely at higher temperatures (the sort of thing one gets in an enclosed space in a hot country).

    Looks pretty messy in that picture. Last time I was outside the gate it was pretty well organised with loads of fresh cut lumber, but as is usual, most could not run a successful Chook Raffle here. Wouldn't surprise me if it has changed hands and been turned to shyte... :sour:
