I love working with exotics and hardwood, but some times you need some pine for projects for craft shows. SO WHAT HAS HAPPENED? I go to the big box store you know who they are and they have this composite S—- they call whiteboard they are passing off. Anybody in Syracuse or central New York still selling PINE?

The local box stores carry clear pine in the section with the poplar and red oak. It’s nice wood to work with, altho at a premium price.

You can usually get some dimensional lumber is yellow pine also. Check out 2×6’s and 2×8’s. Cut out the center and scrap it and you have some nice quarter sawn lumber.

Have your say...
