My neighbor the retired machinist was saving some ‘Mahogany’ boards from an old crate for 40+ years in his garage rafters. I took this board and thought no way mahogany has knots like this, but it was ~18” wide and almost 10ft long. After the first pass I saw my suspicions were confirmed that it was Pine. I filled the knots with black epoxy and finished with shellac. The fir support rails were being thrown out by a local mill, it is held together with 10 degree dados, glue and pocket screws.
The cut offs made a nice fish to hang up in the shop.
