Got the chance of some solid Acacia wood, its for indoors and will come direct from the sawmill, was thinking of a light sanding and then what? Wax, Stain, Varnish, they will be two uprights and a 3.7mt cross piece, as an entrance, so people will may brush against them, Thankyou.

Well I have got the beams, but no one seems to be able to advice me on what to do next, not what I expected.

Hi Alan -- I don't know much about Acacia but if it's for indoors you will need to do some research on the seasoning of this timber as drying out too quickly will cause it to split and buckle quite badly. If it's come straight from the sawmill I presume it will be quite green. -- Julian
