as woodworkers we tend to underappreciate woods that are not mahogany or walnut, but I think we should appreciate the unique characteristics that can be found in pine when explored long enough, which is easy to do thanks to its availability. below is a link to a box I made out of a unique piece of fire knot pine.

Nice work.

Tip: set your blade height to the material thickness plus a hair. Lots less sanding and a bigger box to boot!

I have nothing against pine or fir, or “white woods”, as LOWES calls it. I made a set of totes to store all my fauncy boutique wood that I buy, until I use it. Guess that’s another project that I could post. I have a bunch of projects laying around; now that I have a better camera, I can add them. That’s been the major sticking point for project publication here, for me.
