Locust is an attractive wood with an interesting grain pattern.  The wood is dense, extremely rot resistant, and also high in tensile strength.  We use locust for pegs in exterior timber frame projects.  The combination of Baldcypress timbers and locust pegs in our pavilion and porch timber frames yields a structure that will endure the elements for generations.
