« Part 36: AKs ToolMakers Chest the begining Pt 1 Part 37 of Working with recycled timber series Part 38: AKs ToolMakers Chest Drawer Making Pt 3 »

Today I busted open the pack, consulted my drawings for the concept, selected some timber of a suitable size for the chest frame and ran the lengths through the thicknesser to clean them up and get some consistant thicknesses

The timber came up a treat, I am not sure now that it is in fact pine, as I have never seen the dark streaks before

The smaller sections most certainly are pine, and again cleaned up OK

I intend to use the long piece for the top and sides the piece with the holes in it for the base, otherwise that piece would be either wasted or repaired or resawn for drawers.

Well its time for a coffee and tomorrow out with the sander.

-- Regards Rob

You sure wouldn’t find pine that looks like that anywhere around here.
