Where does everyone get their untreated 4x4's at? I have searched everywhere and all I can find is treated. Also all I can find is pine where is everyone finding other types of wood?

    Where are you? In the Pacific North West, Lowes, Home Depot and other lumber yards have 4X4 (nominally 3-1/2"X3-1/2") available in cedar, hemlock or spruce untreated, the more common is cedar. If you are making a table, cedar is fine for "legs". 
    We have some specialty lumber yards offering 3X3 and 4X4 in other "exotic" woods, maple, oak etc...
    If you had to you can laminate a couple of 2X4's together, produces a 3X3-1/2. Or if you have a table saw, rip the 2X4 (1-1/2X3-1/2) to 1-1/2X3, then laminate to create a 3X3. Good luck!
