One day my Dad decided to tear down his dilapidated wooden corral and build a new one. He installed heavy cedar posts and planned to nail some heavy 2x6 boards to them. At the time, white or yellow pine lumber was not pre-treated like it is now. Untreated boards wouldn’t last but a few years. Therefore, before they were nailed, Dad placed them on the ground and had me paint them with creosote at least two times.
