Well, I got it all apart and off the trailer. All the good little boards are on a pallet and nail free. I'm not sure if they will be good for much, but I can keep them around for now. I ended up getting 16 big boards. I think it was 3 of them that were cracked and junk. They still have a million nails each in them. That job is terrible. I think I have 5 of the 16 90% nail free. There are some nails that broke off in them. I have no idea what to do with those nails. You wouldn't want to run any of them through a sawmill.

Tearing up a set of planer knives or a saw blade on nails could cost more than the wood is worth.

The two inch thick wood would be good and strong for a cattle coral or loading chute if you can drive all the remaining nails below the surface. Two of the heavy boards at body height to the cattle and lighter 1 1/2 inch lumber above and below those should work fine. Paint the rough wood so it doesn't give off as many slivers and to make it slicker.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I have a saw blade for just that purpose. :lol: One of those where it still cuts, but if you hit a nail you won't lose sleep. I guess some days it pays to be too cheap to throw anything away. :lol:

Buy and old running gear, restore that , then use the 2x for a floor. Nail and glue 3 together for longitudinal rails (2 ea 6x12's). Don't bolt them down in the front.
