White Oak Deck?
« on: May 12, 2008, 10:09:57 PM »
I'm new to this forum, but have been involved in woodworking & foresty for  a little bit. Our old deck is about shot (it was untreated pine). I was wondering about building a new deck, but with a hardwood. Would white oak be overkill? If so, what are some others you would suggest? (I want this deck to last for awhile).

white oak may give you some issues with the surface checks getting grime and mildew in them

not sure, though.  I read that somewhere.

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.

Thanks for the responses guys, I'd heard that Locust was good.
