Location: Lakeland, Fl

Briefly, I am a retired woodworker who is now having a different kind of fun by doing some of the projects I didn't take the time to do when I was making a living at it.

Have built a small cottage in the back yard to tinker in and have an old (1920's) garage on on a lot downtown where I work on my boats and other interests.

Tom thanks for the lengthy response. I really enjoyed it. One man’s trash is another’s treasure. We own a portable sawmill and do our own cutting, however our pine logs are left set to achive the begining to that rotting stage. In the back woods of eastern oregon here that is a sought after look. People go nuts for it here. You are right about the marr-ability of the wood and thats just one of the trade off that you face with any wood/work dinamics. A perfect surface isn’t really what you go for with this rustic look either. In my business I have found that good construction, a nice design and a smooth finish is what people are looking for more than a 100% scratch free finish. Time is money and with the mark up I can put on this blue stain pine to the right people I can afford to sand a little more.
