I do it all the time. I use the scraps/remnants from my woodworking projects. Just be sure that it is not 'finished' in any way (no stain or varnish/sealer).

I assume this is slab wood & 'green'. You'll have to stack & dry it a couple months, then the bark will come off easily.

go for it...

Around here, you can get slab wood that is seasoned or green. $10 a bundle. 1 bundle will more than take up the entire bed of a pickup.
They are a PITA to cut into usable size pieces and will dull your saw quickly.
