It depends if you want to work with pine or not.
Many people here think it’s a trash wood I guess because it’s not some kind of exotic wood but I actually like it.
I think it also has to do with the thinking that if it’s sold in the big box stores and it doesn’t come from a true wood worker’s store, it’s not for fine furniture.

I have some really nice slabs from some pine trees that I had to cut down and I’m about to build a cabinet with it for the top. If the price makes sense to get it milled, then go for it. One problem with it is that it can be very high in pitch so can make sanding, and working it difficult. One thing to help with that is to put it into a kiln to help set the pitch at a high temperature.
