I am building ana white style farmhouse tables with planked tops. Most people that I see building these online are using 2x pine. It is cheap and drier than some wood. Here in Northern California, the only pine I can find is in 1xs or 2x4. I am wanting to find 2x6 and up pine for planked tables.
The only wood source I can get in 2x6 and up is douglas fir. However, it is wet wood, even though it is kiln dried, and worries me to build table tops out of it.
How can I get 2x6, 2x8 and 2x10 planks of pine in California? Or, what is a good alternative for cheap dry wood that will be stained?
