this is the first peice of furniture i made in my new shop, we had just finished building our home and i needed a dresser, its made of antique heart pine with curly heart pine drawer fronts…some of this wood had a white wash on it when we salvaged it, and when i came across the drawer fronts and could see the figured grain under it, it was like a kid in a candy shop…it is most beautiful and rare to come across, the drawer pulls have been replaced with rustic oak twig pulls, it is finished with tounge oil.

The curly heart pine is quite a find and really looks great. Well done.

well fellow jocks.thanks for all your kind remarks, the reason i have done so much with the antique heart pine is when i first moved here to alabama from 15 years in alaska, is we salvaged a old home that was build in 1900, the walls in my home are covered with t and g heart pine…and i have tons of it left to make the furniture for my home…and projects for others…i have about 30 4×5 post of nothing but solid herat pine, and this stuff is as hard as oak….i love the natrual beauty it has…there is no stain on this wood, or any of the pieces ive made…all natrual color…....ive really enjoyed this site and love to see all the projects you do…being disabled with back problems has given me limatations and i often push through with pain to make what i do…i cant just lay here and not work…so i make these things somtimes at an hour here and a hour there until its done…...i love wood working and always will…..keep working the wood guys…grizzman
