An upcoming piece on my project page will be the new bunk beds I’m marketing. The one I’m working on now is biult out of blue pine. These two words have become a dirty word in the fine woodworking world. I love hardwood as much as the next wood freak but I think this wood has gotten a bad wrap. With the finishes and building technology we have today pine can be durable and strong if used right. I have had a great time this week seeing this great wood come to life in my shop. One of my favorite things about it though is that you can workout the construction of a peice that you make for the first time. If you mess up you aren’t burning a $13 bf piece of exsotic hardwood. Yet when you get done you still have a decent looking product. If you are harboring a pejudice agains this nice, fun to work wood maybe you should go out and pick up a stick of blue pine and see what you can come up with.
