Good Morning All,
I was very fortunate to get a beam of heart pine. I just milled it on Saturday and was amazed what was inside the beam. I was told that this quality of heart pine is about 200 years old and can only be found through saving it when they demo a building, which is where this beam came from. The wood is as hard as oak and is as red as red oak, like I have never seen before. Also it has 26 growth rings per inch!! Workbench maybe or is it too good for a workbench?
