Hi, I just had a delivery of timber that I will make quite a few CBG's out of. It came all the  from..........well, my carport actually. I had to replace some more fence palings so waste not want not as they say. 

Photos should tell the story.

Thumbs up for reclaiming

The cleaned up wood looks pretty good to me Taff - how long before your family realise you are converting the whole house into guitars? :0)

That's the acme of homemade right there

Ha, ha, and that's just the half of it.

Looks like I posted this in the wrong spot. I meant it for what's on your workbench section.

I used cedar fence plank before. I had to dry it in the oven first and make sure it didn't have any creosote in it. It ended up being very soft. Especially since I thinned the top and back for better acoustics. Had to use a lot of inner bracing to keep it all straight, so watch out for that.

I love using reclaimed products for gits.
