I am planing a new deck and the decking with be 5/4 x 6 cedar. It is “green”, but from what I have seen from cedar that I have bought from time to time that while not perfectly dry, it is not “wet” and the amount will vary.
From limited experience it does not shrink near as much as WET PT SYP.
But I don’t have a clue about what kind of spacing to use as a min.
And for safety what is a max. If possible I want to adjust the spacing so I won’t have to ripe 16 ft pieces to width.
