I’ll admit to being a wood snob, if it isn’t highly figured or exotic… it doesn’t really interest me.
However I found this piece of super dense (old growth) pine in the shop and was so impressed by it, I made a pen. I’m really ignorant of pine species but I believe it’s what the Japanese refer to as “black pine”; anyway the iridescence in the grain is hard to capture but is enough to change my opinion in regards to the softer side of wood.
